Gneiss (Earl Grey)

(31 customer reviews)


An earl grey topped with lighter notes.

10 in stock (can be backordered)


Gneiss is the bedrock of the Hebrides and Tiree gneiss was the intended building material for the Skerryvore lighthouse, but after the first three foundational courses the builders opted for softer Mull granite for the rest of the tower! 

Like its namesake, Gneiss Earl Grey is a solid base for a great cuppa, topped with lighter notes.

Hints of: Dance tunes and bright lights.

    Another lovely tasting tea

    As good as any Earl Grey that I have tried in the past. One bag makes a small pot of tea, so if you like your Earl on the gentle side, don’t let it steep too long.

    A flavoursome Earl Grey

    Earl Grey is my favourite tea and I consider myself a discerning drinker of it! I took a gamble on this one as I never usually drink anything but the one brand but I’m glad I did. It matched if not surpassed it. Worth every penny!

    Lovely taste, gentle and hits the spot!

    Delicious cuppa! Keep up the good work 😊

  11. Diane (verified owner)

    Loved the smell that came out of the bag as I opened – not a typical earl grey scent, but lovely nonetheless. Loved the taste of the tea!

  12. Shirley Chambers (verified owner)

    Very good and we liked the packaging, a good product to send to a tea drinker friend as a treat

  16. Heather (verified owner)

    Love the flavour! I don’t know if it is just my taste buds but I really like the chocolate-y tones!

  17. Jenny M. (verified owner)

    Flavour is just right, with or without milk.
    Great package design especially as it features Skerryvore

  18. Lorna (verified owner)

    Perfect blend, I’ve tasted!

  19. Elisabeth Spence (verified owner)

    Right amount of fragrance

  20. Mairi Hedges (verified owner)

    I’ve tried many Earl Greys, this one was quite different to what I’ve been drinking recently (to be expected, it’s your unique blend). Really floral. I like it. Thank you.

    A well balanced Earl Grey, not too over-‘flowery’.

  24. Owen Dixon (verified owner)

    Delicious Earl Grey! An Earl Grey Plus, really – something extra in the flavour, which I really liked. And it’s smartly-presented, well-packaged and quickly delivered – impressive given the distance involved!

  25. Rob Wherrett (verified owner)

    What’s not to like about the nice gneiss tea?

  26. Laurence Wareing (verified owner)

    Packaging briliant again. This made such a lovely birthday surprise gift. The verdict is yet to be received on the taste, but we’re confident in the Tiree Tea product!

    I’m more than happy to leave a further review for Gneiss! It’s the smoothest Earl Grey I’ve tasted, full bodied flavour too..very enjoyable.

  28. Marcus de Ferranti (verified owner)

    Deeelicious 👍😊

  29. Gail Glen (verified owner)

    I love me an Earl Grey and this is up there with the best.
