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.
