Twinings, Blossom Earl Grey
To capture the moment when Orange trees flower as winter turns to spring, we've created a stylish mix of sweet orange blossom flavour and citrus bergamot.
The result? A black tea that brightens your day and warms you from the inside out. Great news - although initially launched as a Limited Edition, Blossom Earl Grey is now permanently available, following popular demand.
All natural ingredients:
- Black tea
- Natural bergamot favouring with other natural flavourings (7.5%)
- Natural Orange Blossom Flavouring (2%)
This came in a recent care package. This bagged tea, as far as I know, is not available in the US. This particular bag made its way to my house from Ireland. I thought it was the British version of the Earl Grey sold here. It is not. as you can see in the ingredient list this is a black tea with bergamot and orange. The bergamot is lighter than Earl Grey. The orange is lighter than in Orange Bliss. Together they make a solid and flavorful offering. Imagine Lady Grey without the lemon. That sort of describes the flavor of this tea.
When the cup was very hot, I wasn't sure the flavors were natural or mingled well together. It just seemed a little off. The more the cup cooled the better it tasted. I actually liked this one at room temperature. This is another solid offering from Twinings though you may have to work at it a bit to hit your sweet spot.
