St. Isaac's Blend

A premium blend of Ceylon and China teas, the smooth black tea base balances well with the refreshing natural flavors of bergamot and citrus fruit. Popular in Europe, this Russian-style blend is recommended for an interesting departure from traditional Earl Grey.

Wonderful companion Tea to Earl Grey Créme Vanilla
Bruce – MA – June 18, 2020

My favorite daily tea is the Earl Grey Créme Vanilla. I was looking for an additional tea which would have a similar taste profile. The St. Issac’s Blend is the perfect companion tea to Créme Vanilla which I drink in the afternoon. It’s also a German import. More spice, and the finish is perhaps a bit more pronounced. Excellent!

Lemony Bergamot
Paul – WV – September 24, 2019

I like Earl Grey because of the bergamot aroma and flavor (aromatic component is in "4711" cologne, also) , so I was induced to try this variant. Both the aroma of the dry leaves and the flavor that comes through in the tea are very likable. I steep my tea for 4 minutes, starting with the water at about 210°(typical b.p.) at the initial pouring.

Oh so fragrant
Janet – TX – May 14, 2019

This is a very fragrant, smooth tea that I discovered when offered a sample about a year ago. Since then I have ordered several times. While I used to drink such a tea in the afternoon, I now have to limit my caffeine intake to the morning, so this has become my personal breakfast tea. I find it a bit brighter than the standard Earl Grey.

Who's Earl Grey? long live St. Isaac
Jerry – MI – April 16, 2019

This tea tone's down an Earl Grey tea and gives it a lemony kick. It sounds lame, but drinking this tea starts with the nose. It's like aromatherapy in a cup.

Chuck – ME – February 23, 2019

Not a fan of Earl Gray tea, don’t like bergamot. Being a free sample I figured I’d try it. Wow, the fresh smell of lemon alone peaked my interest. Being blended with the Russian black tea made a world of difference. This may become one of my regular choices.

Favorite of the Earl Grey types
Katherine – NY – February 20, 2019

I did a taste test of all the Earl Grey's, and didn't find a huge variation- loved them all. I thought this one might be a refreshing twist on a classic, but it was the most quintessential to me, exactly what I want in an Earl Grey.

Great, Smooth Earl Grey Taste-alike
Dave – MA – February 14, 2019

I received this tea as a sample with my regular tea and just tried it this morning. It was fantastic. According to Upton's description, it's a Russian-style blend with citrus and bergamot, but to me, it tastes like a smooth, robust Earl Grey. I drink most of my teas with honey and a little milk and with those added, this tea is outstanding!

Fragrant and smooth
Heather – CA – December 14, 2018

I’m a fan of Earl Greys, and I generally go in for blends with extra bergamot. This blend satisfies my desire for a fragrant cup and a complex citrus profile. Even with a long steeping (5 min) and no sweetener, it is a smooth cup with a pronounced flavor. I predict I will reorder this one!
