  • Not my favorite

  • Michelle – CO – April 13, 2021
  • I like a strong bergamot EG so assumed this would be perfect, but I thought it had a chemical taste that was slightly off-putting. Glad I only ordered a sample.
  • Good solid tea

  • This is a good earl grey, overall. I’ve tried many from tea bags to loose and this one is high on the list. Lots of bergamot in this tea and I’m not sure what the base tea is (maybe Ceylon) but it becomes very bitter if you steep more than 4 minutes, so watch out for that. I liked the sample, but I’m not in love with it.
  • Just right!

  • Really nice on its own or mixed with another black tea.
  • Aroma was overpowering for me

  • Kathleen – NY – February 07, 2021
  • I hesitated to try this one because my nose is really sensitive. And yes, that was a problem. Flavor was nice, but I much prefer the original or blue flower.

  • My all time favorite. Every order includes a bag. I like it straight and mixed with other teas like the Earl Grey Creme Vanilla, or Darjeeling, or Oolong.
  • Wow, this tea is GREAT!

  • Susan – MA – August 29, 2020
  • Upton Tea sent this tea to me as a BONUS sample in my last order. It will now be a staple in my tea diet. It’s so good! I’ve never tasted a bergamot tea this fresh and vibrant.
  • Quite enjoy this tea!

  • Karen – CA – August 09, 2020
  • I love extra Bergamont flavor and I don't feel that it is too much in this tea. I'm ordering more right now in fact.
  • Rich In Scent and Flavor

  • Jared – FL – July 27, 2020
  • Earl Grey is my absolute favorite tea and this one may have stolen me away from all my other options. When steeped just as instructed, the scent is intoxicating and rich with not a single taste of bitterness... just a wealth of bergamot tempered well with black tea. If you like Earl Grey, I feel this is essential.
  • Love the extra punch of bergamot

  • Paul – CA – May 12, 2020
  • I've always been a fan of Earl Grey and like a heavy-handed amount of bergamot. I have used another brand double bergamot for years, but I really prefer loose tea to bagged. I found this and it's my new favorite Earl Grey. I always drink mine iced and this is absolutely refreshing in the morning. Delicious!
  • Can't replace the old Extra Bergamot Earl Grey

  • Jennifer – IN – April 18, 2020
  • I bought a sample of this since my favorite extra bergamot earl grey was discontinued. (In fact, I bought samples of all the earl greys.) It just doesn't stack up for me. This one leans more citrus, and I prefer a more floral earl grey. I guess I'm an artificial-flavor fan. RIP Extra Bergamot English Earl Grey!
  • Wonderful

  • Layla – CA – April 10, 2020
  • I love bergamot, and so this was a no brainier for me to try in a sample size. It's sincerely wonderful and delivers. It's also quite strong. You only need a little bit and it goes a long way. It's almost spicy and warm like it has ginger, but it doesn't, its just the bergamot. I'll order more for sure.
  • Best Earl Grey ever!

  • Amy – CO – April 02, 2020
  • I just got this tea delivered to me today, and I hurried into the kitchen to get a cup brewing so I could try it. It is by far the best cup of Earl Grey I have ever tasted! It does have a strong bergamot taste- and it is delicious! It’s strong but still very smooth. I love the fragrance! I would highly recommend this tea to Earl Grey lovers!
  • First Earl Grey in a decade, its a good one!

  • Alice – CA – March 31, 2020
  • This is the first cup of Earl Grey I've had in about a decade. I was off of Earl Grey because some have a fake lemony flavor or the tea itself tastes ashen. This brew may bring me back to Earl Grey. Unlike others, I do like the extra bergamont used here. Its not fake or bitter. Tea is strong and balanced, long lasting. No need for sugar or milk.
  • A little less bergamot would be nice
  • 4 star rating
  • Amy – SC – March 05, 2020
  • Yeah, so i think there is too much bergamot as well. I mean d**n, this is knock your socks off level of bergamot, a wee bit unnecessary. I think the effect would be nice with 2/3 of the amount they put in there, and that could still be called EXTRA.
  • not for me

  • monica – CA – March 02, 2020
  • i received a sample package of this tea in an order, and found the bergamot flavor far too strong. I love a nice earl grey but i did not enjoy this one...
  • Searched 15 years for the best Earl Grey in the world, and this is it!
  • 5 star rating
  • Reuben – WA – October 14, 2019
  • If you enjoy a bold citrus fragrance and taste of Bergamot, you will love this tea above all others. I love that no bitterness creeps in; no matter how strong, hot or long it brews so I don't add any sweeteners to this tea. Everyone I have shared this delicious tea with has agreed, it is the best they have ever had, of any type.
