Would the world still turn without Earl Grey Tea? Many would doubt it. Originally just for the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom: Charles Grey. Later it was spread throughout the kingdom, and then around the world. It is so popular that we offer eight versions of it.
Comparing Harney tea to Bigelow is like saying Nordstrom is a better store than Walmart. Harney is in a completely different league and their Earl Grey is superb. When I open up a fresh tin of loose leaves, my entire body inhales and goes: Ahhhhhhh…! I steep it really black and add honey, milk. Wonderful and rich. Makes getting up in the morning a little less horrid. (Posted on 6/3/15)
This is a solid earl grey. The black tea takes front and center. The bergamot is present in a spicy and floral way. The tea is not oily unlike other non H&S earl grey teas I have sampled. (Posted on 2/11/15)
I'm not usually a fan of Earl Grey, but after starting to like Bigelow's version, I thought I'd try Harney & Son's Earl Grey. Oh my goodness; this is one good cup of tea. So sweet and smooth, with the perfect mixture of lemony citrus and black tea. I'm certainly sold; I think this will be a new staple in my cupboard. (Posted on 2/27/14)
I tried this version (the standard one) as well as the special one with silver tips. I found this version to be better, more substantial with a bigger body (mouth feel) and a longer finish. That made it more balanced than the Supreme which shares with this one a superb fragrance, but is a little weaker in the mouth. I highly recommend this! (Posted on 9/13/12)
I was on a long-term work assignment, staying in a hotel in a city where I knew few people. The hotel offered Harney & Sons Earl Grey tea in the rooms and it was a welcome pleasure at the end of many long days. I'm so glad to find the tea sachets online and ordered some today. Delicious!
