Review of The Tea Makers Earl Grey Supreme Tea

As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. Earl grey tea has to be one of my favourite teas as it can be enjoyed milk free, perfect for dairy free me. I have tried several brands of earl grey tea of varying qualities. So when The Tea Makers of London contacted me and asked if I would like to try their NO.07 Earl Grey Supreme I of course said yes.


Onto the packaging I received a sample packet. I liked the dark black theme to the front. To the centre is a simple black label with the companies logo to the top. There is an inviting description of what to expect from the tea. The back of the packet is silver and has a clear window allowing you to see the tea inside. I also liked the ability to easily re-seal the packet to keep the freshness of the tea. Onto the ingredients list. Ceylon tea, bergamot oil and flavour are listed. There are no allergens highlighted in the ingredients list and there is no may contain warning.

On opening the packet I was greeted by a strong and very inviting citrus aroma, it reminded me of a quality bergamot. I added freshly boiled water to the tea and infused as instructed. The aroma was as I had anticipated that being of a strong quality black tea with fairly strong undertones of bergamot noted. This intensified slightly on my famous close up sniff test.

On sipping the tea it was fairly strong and well-balanced. I got the strong and rich bodied flavour from the Ceylon intermingled with the fairly strong yet not overpowering slightly citrus undertones from the bergamot. I love a nice cup of traditional earl grey with no fancy added extras and this certainly ticked all of the right boxes. It had the perfect balance of both aroma and flavour that I associate with a nice earl grey. The strength of the aroma from the bergamot was higher in strength compared to other earl grey teas whilst not being too strong. The bergamot broke down the strong rich bodied flavour from the Ceylon to just the right amount.

So would I recommend this earl grey tea? Yes, definitely. It has a lovely bergamot aroma and flavour which works perfectly with the good quality Ceylon tea in this blend. So thank you The Tea Makers of London for producing a delightful earl greys tea.

    I can never make up my mind whether I’m a fan of Earl Grey! Some ones I’ve tried have been amazing but others just a bit weak and plain. Guess it all depends on the brand x

      Hi, I think that you have hit the nail on the head perfectly. It just depends on the brand. I think you would enjoy this one.

  6. January 16, 2018 / 10:09 pm

    That tea sounds amazing! I haven’t had an Earl Grey in a really long time, the flavours weren’t particularly well balanced in the last few I’ve tried but this sounds lovely x

    I am not currently a tea drinker but I put on my 2018 resolution list to try more tea. This one will definitely be on my list to try. I loved how you described it.

    • January 17, 2018 / 9:00 pm

      Oh love your resolution, this would be a good way to point it in the right direction.

    • January 17, 2018 / 8:58 pm

      It sure was a quality cup of tea

  12. January 18, 2018 / 8:27 am

    I need to try this. I love tea and variations on Early Grey are my favourite. Have you tried M&S Empress Grey. It’s my favourite. Even beats Fortnam’s! #SharingtheBlogLove

    • January 18, 2018 / 5:49 pm

      Hi, I have tried the Empress Grey and I am afraid that I didn’t like it but did like the F & M one.

      • January 18, 2018 / 6:19 pm

        Yes Countess Grey I think. It’s not always in their online store though. We have a lovely tea rooms in Cardiff called Waterloo Tea that have their own blends of tea. That’s quite nice. Lots of different types. Darjeeling is lovely. They have an online store and also a monthly subscription offering but I’ve yet to go that far.

        • January 20, 2018 / 9:03 pm

          Oh I shall take a look at their website, thanks for the recommendation.

    • January 18, 2018 / 5:47 pm

      Hi, it sure is gorgeous and well worth trying.

    Earl Grey is one of those teas that I can never decide over but when I find a brand of it that I like then I tend to enjoy and stick to it. x

    • January 18, 2018 / 5:44 pm

      Hi, it can be a little hit and miss with earl grey. I would certainly recommend that you try this one.

    • January 18, 2018 / 5:43 pm

      Hi, please do I am sure that they will love it.

  15. January 18, 2018 / 5:32 pm

  16. January 18, 2018 / 5:33 pm

    Ooooh, give me some of that bergamot goodness! Bergamot is one of my favourite scents as well as tastes, and this one sounds just delightful! Well done to Tea Makers of London on such a fab product!

      Oh I want a nice cup of earl grey reading your comment and am dreaming of bergamot. I may have to pop to the kitchen in a minute and grab my packet of Tea Makers tea.

    • January 18, 2018 / 5:41 pm

      Hi, it sure is a fab earl grey. I may need to stock up its not going to last long.

  17. January 18, 2018 / 10:36 pm

    Yes!! Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas as well, I personally drink it with milk in the morning most of the time, but midday I usually have it without milk! I always love trying different teas to keep things interesting. That’s good that there was a reseal bit to keep the tea fresh – I usually take the tea out of whatever it comes in and put it in a small container to keep the freshness. Sounds like it tasted amazing!

      Hi Sahara, as a fellow earl grey lover are there any that you can recommend that I can try. I am afraid that I have far too many teas to store in containers.

  19. January 21, 2018 / 12:13 pm

    This sounds like the perfect Earl Grey! I’ve never really gone for it myself as I like lots of milk in my tea, but I’ve recently gone dairy free and I am missing my tea, so I might give it a go and see if I can acquire the taste! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • January 22, 2018 / 5:46 pm

      Hi, earl Grey is an acquired taste and can vary in its strength in relation to the bergamot. This could be a good one to try.

  20. January 22, 2018 / 4:19 am

    That tea cup is adorable! Thanks for the read (:

    • January 22, 2018 / 5:39 pm
