More of a Good Thing Tea - Our exceptional Earl Greyer blend combines the lush flavor and exquisite fragrance of the Bergamot Orange, native to Southern Italy, with a lovely Ceylon black tea leaf from Sri Lanka. Recognized as the best tasting Earl Grey available.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Fine black tea and natural bergamot oil
Country of Origin
Tea: Ceylon, Kenya / Bergamot: Italy

Best Earl Grey on planet Earth. Picard would flip his lid over this, just the best ever. If you like Earl Grey, you need this in your life! I'm getting the bulk of this one for sure.

The taste is great! He drinks it with honey and adds a bit of ginger to curb the appetite.
July 25, 2014
Earl Grey has long been my favorite tea, hot or iced. This one is the best ever. So flavorful and soothing.
July 21, 2014
I've found my coffee alternative, when I'm wanting a little boost without as much caffeine. I brew a cup of Earl Greyer and top it off with a little half-n-half. Beautiful!
Long Time Favorite

San Diego, CA
Earl Grey Tea had been my favorite hot tea since I started drinking tea every morning. Earl Greyer became my absolute favorite morning hot tea the very first time I smelled it's intoxicating aroma rising from the cup, in a resturant, several years ago. I rarely have the same flavor two mornings in a row, but I will make an exception with this delightful tea.
My last cup of the night
July 06, 2014
My last cup of tea for the day is always Earl Greyer. I used to drink another fine brand, but Greyer is definitely a cup above!
My Go-to Tea
June 27, 2014
This is my favorite earl grey blend - which is saying a lot as earl grey is my favorite daily tea. Compared to Bigelow or Twinnings, it is a gentler, brighter tea with a more noticeable citrus flavor and subtle floral notes. It is equally good black or with agave or honey. I've been drinking it for years.
June 01, 2014
This is the tea sample that prompted me to place my first order with Republic of Tea! I am not a tea snob and do not know much, but my tastebuds came alive when I had my first sip! I like to add creamer and sugar to my tea. This tea tastes unlike any other black tea that I've tasted! So much so, that I just ordered another can of it!
Doesn't get bitter, even leaving the tea bag in

CAPE CORAL, FL
This is a wonderful tea. It never gets bitter, even when I leave the bag in the cup for awhile. I love it.
This is the best Earl Grey tea...
April 11, 2014
Laguna Woods, CA
I have tried various Earl Grey teas, but this is the best one... the combination of the bergamot orange and tea is just right on the money!
April 04, 2014
Been drinking Earl Grey for 30 years and find Earl Greyer to have the perfect blend, not over popwering the smooth black tea.
April 02, 2014
Eaton Rapids, MI
There is nothing better, in my view, than a cup of Earl Greyer with a little cream. (Except a cup of Earl Greyer and a scone or two...)
April 02, 2014
The smell and taste are so soothing I enjoyed it very much
Smooth and delicious
March 30, 2014
The best Earl Grey that I have ever had! Smooth with just the right (subtle) amount of bergamot flavor. Love this tea.
March 29, 2014
My husband is a big fan of the Earl Grey teas. Until shopping on the Republic of Tea website, he did not know there was an Earl Greyer variety. Needless to say, he is forever hooked. Being a Southern man, he enjoys his tea iced, and all of our guests are always commenting on how delicious our ice tea is...thanks yall!
Very good Earl Grey
March 27, 2014
Port Orchard, WA
This is a very good and flavorful Earl Grey tea. It's now on my favorites list. Now if they will just make a HiCaf variety for those mornings when I didn't get enough sleep. :D
March 22, 2014
This tea knocks the socks off any Earl Grey tea I've ever tasted. It's also a real eye-opener with plenty of pick-me-up. The flavor is something you'll want to wrap your lips around and savor. Do yourself a flavor and try this tea!
My Favorite Tea
March 22, 2014
This is my preferred tea. Being a black tea, it has the deep flavor I enjoy, but with a spot of orange flavor it gives a nice sweet blend.
March 19, 2014
Greyer is the key word and the distinct bergamot flavour of this tea is absolutely luscious. Too often I find teas have some fragrance but lack the flavour - not the case with this one!
Great Earl Grey
March 16, 2014
fragrance is wonderful,taste wonderful
classic great tasting tea
March 05, 2014
Holly Springs, NC
the description for this tea is spot on. the orange is evident in both fragrance and tea. it feels like the classic tea you would be served in fine restaurants. i prefer 5 minute steep so the black tea doesn't overtake the orange flavor...but some may desire more time...play with it to find the balance between the black and orange. i don't think this tea will disappoint most tea drinkers looking for classic taste
I live this tea

American Fork, UT
I have this canister of bags in my motor home - starts my day off right when we are off and about. I use loose leaf Earl Grayer at home.
February 25, 2014
Delicious, fragrant, an experience I want to have again and again.
February 22, 2014
This is by far the best Earl Grey tea. It also happens to be my favorite. I like making iced tea out of it too during the warmer months. This why I can have my favorite tea year round.
Favorite Black Tea
December 27, 2013
The name of this tea is very apt. I love Earl Grey tea, and this is the best flavored of the teas out there. Sometimes I squeeze two cups out of one teabag, and the flavor lasts through both. Bergamot oil helps the brain be creative, which is something that everyone needs once in a while.
Best of the Field
December 22, 2013
We have tried a minimum of eight different types of Earl Grey tea brands. We have found that this brand stands above the rest we tried when we make sun tea. The flavor is full and bright and does not have any bitterness with this slower lower temp process. It also does well when brewed in the traditional hot water process. Thanks for making such a high quality tea!
December 12, 2013
Love this tea
December 12, 2013
Makes excellent iced tea!
The only Earl Grey I drink
December 11, 2013
I love this tea. I have tried many brands of Earl Grey. Some are passable, some (Tazo) are down right awful. Earl Grey is supposed to have oil of Bergamot but some have so little you can't taste it. Might as well drink English Breakfast at that point. The flavor of this Earl Grey is perfect.
Earl Greyer is Great
December 07, 2013
This tea has a very unique taste that is flavorful and bold. I certainly understand why Captain JeanLuc Picard of the Starship Enterprise frequently enjoyed a cup of Earl Grey tea. It is out of this world.

I love the extra kick of oil of bergamot.
November 26, 2013
One of mine and my better half's favorite tea is Earl Grey, and the The Republic of Tea makes a fine blend of it. The Bergamot is perfect and the Ceylon is rich and deep flavored. It's great with milk and honey or just by itself. Goes nice with deserts. Earl Greyer is our first choice when choosing an Earl Grey. I've started buying it in bulk, because we drink it so often.
November 05, 2013
The BEST Tasting Earl Grey I've ever found!! I love it hot with a touch of honey. It's also great with a little bit of sugar & poured over Ice!
October 19, 2013
I love this tea. Wonderful taste.
October 13, 2013
I totally enjoy sipping Earl Grayer tea. The subtle hint of bergamot lends such a unique flavor to the tea that one can drink this all day long.
July 29, 2013
This is my favorite tea of all time. It makes all other versions of Earl Grey tea pale by comparison. It also makes GREAT iced tea!
A Bit Strong
June 06, 2013
I ordered a pound of this tea for my adult son. The first cup was a surprise for both of us. It was pretty strong. It requires much less steeping than brands like Twinnings. That may be because this tea is fresher. Who knows how long Twinnings has sat on the shelf and lost flavor. Once this change was made, he loved the tea much more. He tends to drink his tea black and I add milk and sweetener. We both enjoy it.
Tastes Just the Way I wanted it to
May 27, 2013
I have been looking so long for the best Earl Grey tea I could find. I would go from coffee to tea and back, but what i really wanted was a very good cup of Earl Grey tea and I found it in this. its just sweet enough and not bitter like most Early Grey's are. its mild buy tasty. It totally satisfying. I am so happy to have found this tea!
Not Greyer, a let down and too timid
April 17, 2013
I usually drink a from a 20oz cup. my standard go to Earl Grey, provided from a purveyor in Vancouver Canada, I put three bags in the cup. For this tea, I put three bags in the cup and there was barely a taste, certainly not near that of my regular supplier. A cursory examination of the problem yielded a probably explanation. 50 bags of Republic of Tea ($10.50) is labeled as 2.8oz on the tin. 50 bags ($14.50) from the Vancouver Canada purveyor is labeled as 9oz. I think you could do just as well with Twinnings from a local supermarket.
April 16, 2013
This was a wonderful tea with great flavor.
March 06, 2013
I have been a fan of The Republic of tea for many years and i have tried many brands of earl grey, this has to be the best ever, i use full leaf tea and my weekend's start with a pot of earl, this is my all time favorite
February 25, 2013
Very delicious. Excellent with milk and sugar too.
Very nice, subtle flavor
February 20, 2013
San Ramon, CA
This tea has a wonderful, subtle flavor. It startled me at first, because it was not what I was expecting. I had not ever had an Earl Grey tea that tasted like this. When I used up the last tea bag, I felt so sad, because I will miss it terribly until I can order up some more.
February 09, 2013
Very flavorful tea for anytime of the day.
20 Years and Still Sipping
February 03, 2013
Twenty years of sipping and Earl is still my favorite tea. Great quality every cup. Looking forward to the next twenty.
January 16, 2013
Earl Gray has been a long time favorite tea. I've meandered through several different brands. Republic of Tea's Earl Grayer is by far the best of the bunch for my taste. It has a strong rich black tea flavor with the sharp citrusy notes that make earl gray so wonderful.
Good but too Strong
January 14, 2013
I was excited to try this earl greyer because earl grey happens to be a favorite of mine. I personally thought that this was a little too strong in the spices, although I've only had one cup, but it didn't steep for very long. I prefer Twinings Earl Grey to this. I'll be trying to steep for a shorter amount of time.
A new standard for Earl Grey tea
January 08, 2013
I love Earl Grey tea. I have had a cup before bed for years. I even taught my children to like Earl Grey tea. Then I found your Earl Greyer! Wow. I now own the huge copper tin and keep it full. Yours is a delicious version that resets the standard!
December 06, 2012
Earl Greyer is probably my favorite of the bunch. It is a classic must for any tea lover.
A lovely tea
December 06, 2012
So California, CA
A nice blend of mellow black tea with bergamot. The orange flavor is in the background as it is meant to be in Earl Grey, while the black is low in tannins. This is a perfect breakfast cup, although I have been known to enjoy a late afternoon cup with a finger or two of scotch - dont knock it until you've tried it!
Good, but not strong
December 05, 2012
I found this tea to taste good, but I just couldn't get it strong enough for me. It almost tasted like a decaf black tea.
My office basic
November 16, 2012
This is my basic - go/to tea when I get to the office. Excellent blend
An exquisite tea
November 08, 2012
My favorite ambrosia in the morning with a bit of milk and honey. Divine!
October 23, 2012
I think this is the best Earl Grey out there. My whole family can't get enough of it.
October 13, 2012
Earl Grayer is fast becoming my favorite spot of tea. It is so refreshing and delicious tasting that I have begun drinking this almost exclusively throughout the day. I would, and have, recommended this to other tea lovers.
I love this tea!
October 03, 2012
This is one of my favorite Earl Grey teas, and I drink a lot of Earl Grey! I love the fragrance as soon as you open the canister. It's a lovely tea!

I really enjoy the Republic of Tea's Earl Grayer with my breakfast. Earl Gray has always been my favorite tea and this one is more full bodied. I find it quite delightful.
EARL GRAYER A GREAT CUPPA TEA

CAMANO ISLAND, WA
This one is excellent hot, and makes the best iced tea too. This time of year we are drinking lots of iced tea.
Earl Greyer has been a long time favorite of ours. It is great unsweetened and also takes sweetening well. I add lemon to my iced tea, and the flavor is complementary.
Best Earl Grey on the market
August 31, 2012
Best Earl Grey tea on the market.. Such good flavor..
Fantastic tea and fabulous service
August 24, 2012
This is one of my favorite Earl Grey teas, it rivals some of the Earl Grey teas I've tried in the UK. I am deeply impressed with TROT's service, the tea was shipped quickly, arrived quickly, and I loved the use of old cut-up tea bags as the stuffing. You won't be disappointed with the tea nor the service. Thanks!
Great Tasting Earl Grey
August 06, 2012
This is the best Earl Grey Tea I have ever tasted. It's strong/full bodied and smooth without being harsh. If you like Earl Grey Tea, you will not be disappointed with Earl Greyer

"Recognized as the best tasting Earl Grey available." By whom??? Absolute bilge. Bigelow makes a much finer product, but even that brand has disappointed me as the years go by. This tea by the Republic is not worth wasting one's money on--very inferior, to say the least.
Love the smell and taste
June 25, 2012
Taste like tea my grandmother used to make for me as a child. I love the subtly taste of the bergamot orange. Sipping it as I'm typing this review. Will definitely buy this again.

This is the best tea ever. Wonderful flavor and you can go English and add a little milk - unbelievable!
June 11, 2012
Earl Greyer is my 'go-to' tea first thing in the morning. It soothes me into the day with it's pleasing bergamot fragrance. I carry it with me and have even been known to substitute it for tea ordered in a restaurant ;)
June 11, 2012
This is my 'go-to' tea first thing every morning; soothes me into the day and I take it with me whenever I'm away from home. I've even been known to order hot tea at a restaurant and slip my Earl Greayer into the teapot ;)
June 04, 2012
I recieved this as a sample in the catalogue, and when I tried it, it seemed a little salty. I don't know if it was the water, or what, but it wasn't all that great.
Best Ever Earl Grey Tea!
May 31, 2012
I buy this tea in bulk because I never want to run out. I love the Bergamot scent as you open the can. Cannot get enough.
May 21, 2012
always the best Earl Grey tea...
My favorite way to have Black Iced Tea!
May 15, 2012
Starbucks USED to have my favorite black iced tea- but then I tried Earl Greyer Black Tea... It is my favorite! It's aroma tantalizes my tastebuds to a point where I can never have only one glass. My preferred method of making iced tea?
-Boil a cup of water
-Steep one tea bag
-Add desired amount of AGAVE sweetener while it is still hot (I used to use Splenda, but Agave is a natural and perfect pairing to black tea.)
-Carefully add the tea to a glass of ice!
May 13, 2012
My first taste of Republic of Tea's Earl Greyer, was a free sample that came with one of their catalogs. I brewed it, tasted it, loved it, and am hooked. It's a very enjoyable tea.
March 24, 2012
Santa Rosa, CA
I love Earl Grey tea. I went to a tea shop and they were serving Republic of Tea's Earl Greyer. It was the best, richest, most wonderful cup of tea I had ever had. It has the most wonderful rich mouth feel. There is nothing like it. I'm delighted to find it for sale in bulk here. Keep up the good work.
March 20, 2012
Wonderful tea to start out a morning.
The Greyer Weekends
March 13, 2012
This is absolutely the best tea to help give you a wake up while at work... We in the MICU/SICU at WVUH drink this tea on a nightly basis. The word spread fast & it has become a twice nightly routine for us RN's on the weekend crew! Thanks for making a great tea & also thank you for selling it in the bulk of 250 tea bags through your website!

I am a tea drinker,never coffee and this Earl Grey is the best. Originally tried it at lunch at Panerra's and had to order from their supplier, The Republic of Tea.
The best early grey
March 05, 2012
Absolutely delicious and smooth. The best earl grey I have tried (the decaf is great too). The round bags with the edges sealed all around are great too. Other tea bags tend to come undone and then there is loose tea floating around - not pleasant. The whole product is great.
best earl grey ever
February 03, 2012
I immediately fell in love with this tea. I have tried many other earl grey tea varieties and brands and this is the best tasting and the one I always come back to. It makes the best iced tea, in my opinion.
January 31, 2012
This was a great tea, but I was disappointed that it wasn't a bit stronger.
January 17, 2012
I've been drinking Earl Greyer for years. It's one of my favorite flavors. Plus the service from Republic of Tea is excellent.
My favorite Republic tea!
January 16, 2012
Earl grey is my favorite tea and I have never found a better one than the Republic of Tea's Earl Greyer! Perfect in lieu of a cup of coffee in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up. It's also great in a tea latte.
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE FOR MANY, MANY Years. THE VERY BEST
January 15, 2012
I have been a lover of Republic of Tea, Earl Greyer Tea for many years. It has the perfect blend of bergamot. I try Earl Grey teas from many sources - NONE are as excellent as R of T, Earl Greyer. It has a wonderful bouquet; if I can't smell and taste the bergamot then for me, the tea is inferior. In addition to its special begamot flavor, is the beautiful deep amber color. I have at least three POTS of Republic of Tea tea every day, of which at least one is the Earl. Keep up the great work. There have long been tea ceremonies from Asia to England, but the Republic of Tea contributes to the best. Thanks. CW
My boyfriend's favorite!

This Earl Greyer is addictive. A staple in our house. No other brand taste as deep & rich as this!
Good relaxing tea

Plant City, FL
Have always enjoyed a cup of Earl Grayer and this is one of the best. Good notes of bergamot and fine tea.
December 20, 2011
The enjoyment begins with just opening the canister. Earl Greyer Tea has the best Bergamot aroma. The tea is full bodied, but not too strong. This is a good everyday tea. Also, a great alternative to coffee.
As Comfy as a Slipper
December 14, 2011
Having been a coffee addict for many years, I decided to take the plunge, give up coffee and try tea instead. The store brands just didn't do it, so I tried the Republic of Tea. Remembering a delightful elderly British professor who always had a pot of Earl Grey on his desk, I gave Earl Greyer a try. Now four years later, it's my main beverage and one that satisfies me beyond belief.
very good, but , , ,
December 12, 2011
I love Earl Grey tea and I was expecting Earl Greyer to be even better than most, but to be honest, while it is very good, it was a bit weak. I followed the recommended brewing directions for the first cup, then made the second cup stronger, but it still just slightly missed the mark. I will buy it again, but I was hoping for a bit stronger taste.
#1 Earl Grey
December 09, 2011
I've tried many brands of Earl Grey, and this is by far the best.
December 05, 2011
My family is not such a big fan of Earl Grey: they hate it. Despite their expostulations, I gave it a try. It's fragrant, its classic, its awesome. If you didn't feel the Grey before, give this one a sip :)
Best Earl Grey Blend Outside the UK
November 06, 2011
This is my favorite Earl Grey blend outside of the UK. I have been drinking Earl Greyer for many years and appreciate the consistency and quality - every cup as good as the previous ones.
A balanced, fragrant, civilized tea...
September 03, 2011
West Hartford, CT
When a certain popular TV character would order tea on the show ("Earl Grey, hot..."), he obviously knew a good thing when he tasted it. This tea is wonderful. Balanced, smooth, and fragrant with a gorgeous color. I steep mine a bit longer than most would because I enjoy the deeper flavor. It lends itself to a profound sense of civility and I enjoy it tremendously. Give it a taste and see if you don't come away with an new appreciation of Earl Greyer.
Still the best!
July 06, 2011
I can remember exactly where I was the first time I tasted this tea back in 1997. This is still the best Earl Grey I have ever had. It is deeply fragrant, delicious with or without milk, a beautiful tea. I've managed to get several dear friends "hooked" on this one over the years!
