From T Kettle

A twist on a classic, fit for a queen! Smooth red rooibos with incredible Earl Grey notes.

The Red Earl was one of Ireland’s most powerful nobles around the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. Similarly, Rooibos (also red!) serves as the base for one of the most powerful (and yet decaffeinated) Earl Greys imaginable – high in antioxidants and off the charts in flavour.

Rooibos, Rosehip, Lemon, Cornflower petals, Natural flavors.

Even though, intellectually, I know this is just meant to be a rooibos based Earl Grey I have to admit that the entire time I drank this I kept expecting there to be a red fruit or berry notes to the cup – and it’s not the name, because I know the “Red” in The Red Earl is for the rooibos tea base. Something about this blend just seemed… unfinished to me though!?

More than anything, I am just really glad I didn’t find it repulsive and skunk-y like I did the Grapefruit Earl Grey (can’t remember if that was actually the name) that I tried a few weeks ago. I was honestly kind of scared that I might have a similar experience for all of T Kettle’s bergamot blends. This was just boring though – bland rooibos and standard bergamot without any life to the cup. However, my impression of “boring” could also easily be someone else’s impression of “classic” – it’s a fine line of personal preference, in that regard…
