Earl Gray
 
Which is the best trademark for the Earl Gray? I used to buy Twinings, but it doesn't satisfy me as much as I expect.
Which kind of tea do you use?

Upton's (with a "U")has an especially strong bergamot Earl Gray which some people in my family like. Toci

There are dozens of different Earl Grey blends. They all start with some
sort of black tea and then add some kind of bergamot, but some of them add
other oils as well and they do start with different grades of black tea from
different places.

Which kind of tea do you use?


I am not a huge Earl Grey fan, but I am a huge fan of Upton's Teas. They
have an internet site, and carry at least three different Earl Grey blends.
Get samples of all of them and try them out for yourself.

Oh, and if you're looking for most Earl Grey of Earl Grey teas, the
Zarrin brand which a local Indian market carries is positively dripping
with bergamot. It's incredibly strong.

Not my thing at all but it made good Earl Grey ice cream...

Hi Eimi,

Which is the best trademark for the Earl Gray? I used to buy
Twinings, but it doesn't satisfy me as much as I expect. Which kind
of tea do you use?


I am especially fond of Tim's selection (Postcard Teas):

See "Mountain Grey" or "Gianfranco's Earl Grey" which are particularly awesome!
I live in France and regularly order these teas.
