Rare Earl Grey is amazing

The taste of this is extraordinary. And what an interesting background story as well. Thank you !!

I ordered the Rare Earl Grey Tea as a gift for my friend. She absolutely loves it. I, personally, do not particularly like it. At the Rare Tea Co there are sooo many other wonderfully exciting teas that I do already love or am hoping to try in the future, that I feel that my own tepid enthusiasm for Earl Grey is pretty null and void to the overall picture! I shall, however, continue to order the EG for my friend. Lucky her!

Tasting Notes

A clean and exceptionally bright infusion. A malty base with exhilarating citrus notes. It can be enjoyed with or without milk, or a twist of lemon zest.


Spectacularly balanced and highly versatile; it makes a delicious cold infused iced tea and a brilliant base for cocktails.


Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 90°C (194°F) water.  If you enjoy your tea with milk, please use 100°C (212°F) water.


Infuse for 45 seconds to 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.  

Cost Per Cup

16p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
