drank Earl Grey by Ridgways
1269 tasting notes

This is plain bad tea.

Maybe because of age, but I do not think so, because of foil wrapping. No aroma in or out. Clasical set-up, mug with boiling water and tea bag (!) in. I did shorter steeping time than they suggest (3 minutes), becasue it turned out cloudy and dark brown so quickly. And the scent was – just awful! Wet socks, no maltiness, no citrus notes, just dirty, wet socks.

The taste if there is any of it, is bit malty but rather watery, again no Earl Grey notes, no tea notes. Yuck!

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
