i've noticed that in scandinavia, you can easily get what's called "persian" earl grey tea (basically earl grey w/jasmine) but i haven't been able to find it over here. which is surprising, because it's so common over there that lipton makes it! (& it's delicious--despite what lipton making it might seem to indicate. the last time i was in finland i had to bring back five bags for my friends!)

has adagio ever had any kind of jasmine earl grey? it's mighty tasty! ;)

I don't remember what the brand name is but it's that gypsy one in the oversize Republic of Tea style tubes, anyway they have one with that mix if I'm not mistaken. It can be found at many stores in my area (West Coast, USA). Oh, and I've never heard it called "Persian Earl Grey" before so you might have better luck just looking for Earl Grey with any old name attached. Good Luck.

thanks for the tip! i think i know the brand you're talking about, so i'll have to take a look. & yeah, i've looked for the particular mix under any kind of name involving earl grey & jasmine, & haven't really had any luck. ;)

Zhena's Gypsy Tea? No jasmine earl grey, but they do have a tasty looking lemon jasmine...

You could always mix Earl Grey and Jasmine together to create what you are looking for if you can't find it elsewhere.

Here in the US, look for "Buckingham Palace Garden Party" blend. It's Earl Grey with jasmine, and sometimes Assam as well. Sounds like what you're looking for.

i've tried tealuxe's buckingham palace garden party & hated it! it didn't taste, to my mind, like my beloved persian earl grey. ;) does anyone know if tealuxe's blend compares to others of the same name?

If you want real traditional Earl Grey tea, From the Persian region. Check out Alvin's of San Francisco Persian Choice Earl Gray Tea. Its insane how good it is. I think rite now they only make loose leaf but its just like drinking tea in ancient iran. (or what i think it would taste like) Its quite strong but if you brew it rite, it will not be as stong.
