It is awesome! The bergamot flavor is well balanced, not too strong, but just enough to make it a great cup of Earl Grey without overpowering the tea itself. The aroma is just to die for. It is also hard to over brew the tea. The White Tip is definitely the best Earl Grey that I have ever tasted. I would fully recommend trying it if you enjoy a fantastic Earl Grey.

I especially like Victorian Earl Grey from Simpson and Vail and the top grade one from Upton"s

Ahmad makes a strong earl gray, it was too strong for me!! Has anyone had this one? I love earl gray but sometimes it upsets my stomach if it is too strong or I drink too much, which is sad because I love it sooooo much!!! There's a million earl grays out there I would try each one by one if I could. lol It's interesting to compare the differences in them. Earl Gray tasting party!!!

I love a nice, strong cup of Earl Grey. But its been so hard finding one that I like. My favorite so far has been Twinings Earl and Lady Grey tea. Of course, I'd like to find a loose leaf version that comes close to Twinings.

The closest I have found is Uptons Earl Grey Rooibos (which I'm drinking right now..yum!). Guess I'll have to keep searching.

I like the Earl Grey from Harney and Sons. It's a bit reminiscent of my favorite French blend, which I can't get in the States. -_-

Yeah, I've tried it, and for some reason, I didn't find it to be the same as their bagged tea. Maybe I should try it again.

Fannings (the small particles in tea bags) brew up very strong because of their high surface area, I think. You may find that overall loose leaf brews are milder, though more complex in flavor.

If you have loose leaf Twinings lying about, you can try brewing it longer if you like the very powerful flavor. Heck leave it long enough and it will kick like a horse. :D
