  • Best Earl Grey

  • Brian – FL – October 23, 2020
  • I received this as a sample with Upton orders twice, and it's the only Earl Grey I have ever enjoyed. For years I've thought Earl Grey is awful. My guess is I've tried versions with little to no bergamot in it. This version strikes a perfect balance. I drink it iced in the mornings. Very satisfying.
  • Among the best Upton Earl Greys

  • I've tried all of the Upton Earl Greys, and I prefer the original and the Earl Grey Supreme. The base tea might not be the best, but the blend is enjoyable.

  • It is not overpowering with bergamot, it is the perfect amount. When I need a little more spice in my morning than a plain black tea.
  • How Earl Grey should taste!

  • Finally an Earl Grey that tastes the way I remember. Most Earl Greys taste really artificial, some even "perfume-like," including Twinings since they changed their recipe. This reminds me of the way Twinings Earl Grey used to taste. Not too much bergamot, but enough that the aroma really comes through. Beautiful golden liqueur.

  • This tea is outstanding. Best Earl Grey I've ever had anywhere. Has light bergamot, just the right amount, and an excellent base tea with good body and almost no bitterness. All my friends that visit ask for it and one friend said its the best tea he has ever tasted. excellent hot or cold, no milk.
  • Very nice, just the right amount of Bergamot for my taste.

  • Very nice, just the right amount of Bergamot for my taste. I enjoyed with whole milk, 1 tsp of Stevia In The Raw, and brewed per the instructions. Not bitter after taste. I gave it a 4 star because I haven't tried the Organic yet at which point I may come back and complete the rating after my comparisons.
