9 Tasting Notes
Bigmont oil made me think I hate earl grays for a long time. This is a classic earl grey made with oil. This has teeth. Brewed a little long or a little hot and it gets pretty vicious and upsets my stomach. The sheen of oil on top should scare you off. There are lovely earl greys but don’t use any with oil.
Decent apple-y pie spice combo. I have tried this a few times, but I am usually a little disappointed with the weakness of the flavors. Longer brew times help. I ended up using up the rest of my stash in a mix of a long brewed infusion and real apple juice. Also the bags work to spice cider.
I was skeptical. The balanced taste of this tea and the warm apricot overtones convinced me that Disney really can do tea. This is not a challenging or bitey tea, and its surprising lack of acidity makes it a really good choice when you just want a nice soothing tea. It isn’t what I would serve at a mad tea party, but it is exactly what I would pull out to comfort a heartbroken friend (and it would go quite well with salted chocolate)
If I want a herbal in winter this is my go-to. Gentle and sweet with a little sharpness that echos the black tea that is my normal choice. I use a longer seep time. This is good with things that are not too sweet because it is easy to overpower the gentle sweetness of this tea.
