1/27/14 Last tea of an Earl Grey tasting. 1tsp/6oz/212F/3min. 1tsp. sugar. 3 min cool. Brand new sample, opened for this tasting. The dry leaf had an intense aroma of frosting – a very sweet vanilla/faint citrus scent. It brewed a very pretty amber gold, and was intensely creamy floral and vanilla in the cup. A vanilla oreo taste much more then citrus. I could taste very little of the base tea, and once the sugar came into play this was candy in a cup. I can see where this would be an enjoyable tea to many, and the flavors were on point and balanced for a cream earl grey, but I personally disliked it intensely.
