Russian Earl Grey
Flavored Black Tea
Earl Grey gets the Czar treatment with sweet orange peel and lemon grass. A splash of milk will bring out the citrus overtones, or add sugar to sweeten it up Russian style. One try and it will be gonesky!

Classic Earl Grey flavor with extra citrus
Copper tending bright
Excellent mix. Much more intense flavor than Twinning Earl Gray which has been a staple for many years. I discovered Riussian Earl Gray on a recent 2 month stay in Spain where it appears to be easily available. This mix is very close to that blend. So far everyone I've introduced this to has rated it as first class. I agree with the comment that precise steeping time is important to its flavor outcome.
The citrus flavors make this one of my favorites. It's also delicious blended with the Earl Grey Cream, softening and enhancing the flavors all at once.
It was delicious
I am a huge fan of earl grey, but I didn't mind this shift from the fundamentals. The lemongrass is lovely, but if you are not precise with your steeping (4 minutes and 45 seconds for me) the city's notes can be a bit overpowering.
Wonderful Earl Grey flavor with just a little different twist. Ear Grey teas have always been one of my favorites and this variety is one of the best!
