More of a black tea than an Earl Grey
I am going to use up the loose tea one tablespoon at a time in a 1-quart Ball canning jar for sweet tea (1/4 to 1/3 cup of white sugar and a mint sprig).
This is not the same Twinings Earl Grey!
Update: due to complaints, Twinings is now selling the “classic” or original Earl Grey tea. Just be sure it’s marked classic to get that same great taste.
(From the Twinings website: “When the mandarin’s tasty gift began to run out, Earl Grey asked his tea merchants, Twinings, to match it for him. Twinings unique blend was the Grey family’s long-standing favourite. When guests inquired about it, they were directed to Twinings on the Strand, where they would ask for Earl Grey’s tea by name.”)
Unless you insist on having *all* your tea with cream or milk, I recommend having this one without any kind of milk products: not only does the original recipe not call for such an addition; in my mind it just plain ruins the blend’s particular flavor. (But that’s just me, of course.) Whichever way you have it, though, if scented teas are your kind of thing, Twinings Earl Grey should be right up your alley.
Best Earl Grey Tea
The best Earl Grey on the market
Twinings is one of the oldest conveyors of Earl Grey and still use the same recipe as they have for well over a hundred years (soon to be two-hundred). Their tea is also endorsed by the 6th Earl Grey and his signature appears on their packaging. Not that this means the tea is superior because of any endorsement; in this case the tea speaks for itself.
I prefer loose leaf teas to tea bags. There is something in the process of measuring tea into a cozy and letting it steep that makes the resulting cup of tea that much nicer. There is a reason they have tea ceremonies in most of the world (and although less rigorous, so do the British in their own way). Twinings is the quintessential British Earl Grey, and if you’ve never tried it, you owe it to yourself to do so. Enjoy!
