If you lose your way, look for the bergamot sun.
A ship packed with crates of fragrant black teas heeled through inky waters toward the clearing of the bergamot sun in search of the Isle of Lavender—to forever soften this headstrong blend with floral notes.
Black tea is the fully oxidized leaf of Camellia sinensis and requires the most processing. The brewed liquor ranges between dark brown and deep red. Black teas offer the strongest flavors and, in some cases, the greatest astringency.
Did You Know?
This traditional tea is named after British diplomat Earl Charles Grey, who became Prime Minister of the UK in the early 1830s. Legends have sprung up around how the well-traveled Earl may have come by the recipe for this bergomot-flavored tea, but we're just glad he passed it on to the masses.

I purchased this from your website because I absolutely loved this tea and I no longer see it available in the stores I would normally purchase it. However, was this an old box that has lost its essence? I will no longer purchase this product from you. Very disappointed.
I wouldn't have to buy this online if you sold it in the stores. Switch supplier from teavana to old vendor. The tea selection in your stores is terrible. Please switch back!! Thanks for saving me money since I no longer have to go into your stores.
This tea is okay, not great, if you're a fan of the now-discontinued Tazo tea @ Starbucks stores. Has a similar flavor profile, but it's MUCH weaker than the full leaf version. Starbucks, please bring back the Full Leaf Earl Grey Tea!!
I was really hoping these were going to be in the silk tea bags as Starbucks tins always used to have. I wAs so disappointed to get my order and see they are just the same as I can get at the grocery store. Why change such a wonderful differentiation you had before??
Great aroma and taste. Very satisfying. Good price too.
The aroma and taste of the tea is wonderful. I used to buy this tea, when I lived abroad all the time. It is a shame that Starbucks stores do not have it on the shelves any longer in the U.S. I also miss the the silver tin that the tea was stored in vice the flimsy cardboard boxes. It really makes a difference when introducing the tea to my friends (especially my English confidantes). Please bring back the silver tin. I will pay.
Get it while you can - Starbuck's new tea company DOES NOT MAKE earl Gray tea. I can NO longer go down to my local Starbucks an order and Earl Gray tea latte - so I'm ordering all I can of this wonderful - very delicious tea!
although a very good tea, tazo is discontinuing its line, in favor of tevana so stay away
Your stores, the supermarkets, ( Whole Foods and Vons or Ralphs , etc. ) and the hotel outlets, includingThe Starbucks Store, are constantly running low or running out of this product. Is there a procurement problem, a need for increased purchasing, or simply not enough tea ?
It is a very good tea , when it is available. One of the best Earl Greys I have ever had, and I have been drinking tea worlwide for over 40 years.
This is a good tasting Earl Grey tea. More economical than the tin but stronger than most other Earl Grey brands. It is definitely a good choice for lovers of Earl Grey tea.
