drank Earl Grey Te by House of Tea
337 tasting notes

Upon opening the box the bergamot aroma is very fresh and strong. Unfortunately, it doesn’t transfer to the brewed tea. There, the bergamot is barely noticeable, you can smell only bland base tea with slight generic flower notes.

The taste is very bland, very watery, with almost no Earl Grey character whatsoever.

Yes, Netto teas sold under the “House of Tea” brand are nothing special, but they are generally quite drinkable. Their “Earl Grey” is an exception… The good news is, it cost me only 3 Danish kroner (promotional price) ;)

Flavors: Flowers

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

Bio

I drink tea almost all the time.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
