16 Tasting Notes
Okay, well, I just love Earl Greys, they are probably my favorite teas. And this … oh, man, this is PHENOMENAL. The smell alone is gorgeous, and it just tastes absolutely wonderful. It’s smooth and rich and flavorful and just … the best Earl Grey I’ve ever tasted. I think I’m going to have to buy a whole pound of this once my first 2 oz. run out!
I love English Breakfast tea, it’s the tea that my mom always made me and my sister when we were younger. This brand, however, is not my favorite. It’s not BAD, but I’ve noticed that there really is no room for mistakes when steeping this one — it goes bitter very quickly if you’re not careful. Still, when I want English Breakfast, and this is the only stuff in the cabinet, I won’t say no.
I thought I didn’t like Earl Grey, until I tried this particular brand about a year ago. Turns out, I DO like it! Since then, I’ve discovered that this is not my favorite version of Earl Grey, but it’s pretty good. It’s VERY aromatic, the bergamot smell is strooooong in this one. Which I like, I just kinda wish it had more flavor to match that.
