Works well with breakfast too, surprisingly. by KizzyKat on 23rd March 2017
Being Autistic I find the leaves dry scent overwhelmingly strong. Like a heavy perfume. I recieved it in mini caddy form as a birthday present, with the Alice tea for one. Initially I was confused & later on I admit was very tearful. I think it was over the caddy shade of blue as well as the strong scent xD as i prefer pastel blues to what may be either powder or duck egg blue, as it chills me out. But, there seem to be no pastel shades in the empty tea caddy range. It didn't compute with me at the time. But, after that confusion was over, i was brave enough to try it the next day. It's obviously very different from the regular/standard earl grey that I was used to in tea bag form, from a different company. I was pleasantly surprised, that it was relatively rather delicate once brewed after about 4minutes, and just the right amount of sweetness. I used the recommended amount on the tin, but for two cups worth instead of one. I've come to associate the caddy colour with my fondness for the tea. ~~\(^__^)/~~ now I have it sugar & milk free every day since, for breakfast with plain semolina porridge and oat biscuits xD at least for my tastes, it goes rather well. As if it all works together to bring about a good level of sweetness & flavours. I ordered more from here last night in the cardboard pouch, as I'm concerned I'll run out in the next week or two. I'm very close to half way through the tin since the 14th of March. I happily noticed when emptying the infusor, the wee pale yellow flowers are quite pretty. I think it's now one of my favourite types of tea and a positive part of my daily routine, so I may keep returning for refills when possible xD either via website, or return to the Edinburgh shop if I can. It's really inspired me to attempt to be even more brave with tea & i purchased 4 more types of Whittards tea to try ~~\(0.0)/~~ I'm looking forward to expanding my tea options (^____^)

Love this tea, the elderflower adds a subtle flavour, I will be buying more
Lovely flowery tea by Fiona on 8th November 2015
This is a really delicious flowery tea, but very subtle. The elderflower gives a lovely unusual taste, but does not overwhelm. I have been drinking it quite weak.
Fantastic taste! by Melody on 2nd November 2015
This is the greatest taste of Earl Grey I ever had! The Earl Grey with light sweet smell makes the tea taste great. Very refreshing morning or afternoon flavour!

Known by the country’s original colonial name, Ceylon, Sri Lankan tea is one of the world’s most popular single origin varieties. However, its success is one of those surprisingly flukes of history. Coffee plantations were originally the country’s main economic resource and it wasn’t until the 1860s that the Scottish pioneer James Taylor planted the first tea bush. He wasn’t having much luck, but when a sudden blight devastated the coffee plantations the Sri Lankan tea industry took centre stage. The tea’s clean, brisk taste proved a real hit at the London tea auctions and the British have never looked back…

White Tea with Flavouring
With its distinct bergamot aroma and delicate taste, we all know Earl Grey as the classic British afternoon tea. If you're looking for something even more lavish, you'll love our innovative white tea variety with its elegant confetti of petals. Selected for purity of taste, white tea blends beautifully with creamy vanilla, sweetly softening the flavours of bergamot.More Details
Black Tea with Flavouring
Not only did Prime Minister Earl Grey inspire this iconic tea, he also abolished slavery in 1833. Let's raise our teacups to that! Our take on the quintessentially British brew is a blend of the finest black tea, balanced with flavours of fragrant bergamot and a signature scattering of elegant blue cornflowers.More Details
Green Tea with Flavouring
A sweetly sophisticated Sencha with exotic flavours of mango, lulo and fragrant bergamot. Picked in early spring for verdant freshness, we've scattered the young leaves with aromatic rose, sunflower and blue cornflowers for a signature splash of colour. Perfect for adding a tropical twist to afternoon tea.More Details
