Long Time Favorite July 21, 2014


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 Go-to Tea June 27, 2014


Norman, OK

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.

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!

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

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.

Oceanside, CA

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!

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.

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.

A Bit Strong June 06, 2013


Cincinnati, OH

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

Ron Jackson

Aurora, IL

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.

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 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!

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
