Russian Earl Grey

Product information



Go bolder with Russian Earl Grey, an intensified version of the classic Earl Grey tea. Orange peel, lemongrass, and blue cornflowers elevate the usual blend of black tea and bergamot. This medley of citrus and floral notes creates a symphony of flavor. Brew it strong, Russian style, with a bit of milk and sweetener.

Great Lady Grey Replacement

My wife and I both like ye olde original Lady Grey tea. This is a wonderful replacement and so much better on so many levels than your typical bag tea in a box. We are relatively new to loose leaf tea and in our opinion Russian Earl Grey is a real winner. I highly recommend this tea if you like a subtle citrusy note with your black tea.

Back again

Back to Whistling Kettle again after trying two more tea purveyors,Milwaukee and Cambridge MA.
This Russian Earl Gray is flavorful with hints of both orange and lemon. As I prefer stronger black teas I somehow blend it with German Breakfast or the like to provide a stronger black tea taste,but the citrus and other flavors make this a fine addition to my tea options.

Flavor is the best!

I have tried many different brands and this tea is the best! I have found the flavor of my dreams and will not drink anything else

Russian Earl Grey Tea

I love Earl Grey Cream tea, so I decided to give this tea a try. It reminds me of a chai tea mixed with Earl Grey and I didn't care for the flavor. Too much going on at once. I tried it with and without milk, but I will stick to my other Earl Greys.
