I am revisiting this Earl Grey. This particular cup comes from the organics collection, and it is a bagged tea – but not the pyramid sachet for which Tea Forté is probably best known. This one was in their newer eco-bags which are unbleached, conventional style tea bags, but instead of the staple on the top of the bag, it is knotted.
Interestingly enough, I am finding this even better than my previous experiences with the Earl Grey from Tea Forté, and I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the way it is bagged, or if it has something more to do with the fact that these eco-teabags are sealed in a foil pouch versus the origami-ish, folded pyramid paper. I suspect it is the latter, because of the freshness factor.
Anyway, this is a delicious bagged Earl Grey: bold, rich and flavorful. A good level of bergamot. Enjoying this immensely.
