429 Tasting Notes
I bought this tea at my local health foods store. Its an Earl Grey with moderate amounts of bergamot. It has a light taste and is not heavy at all. Its not for those who like a heavy bergamot taste. Very easy to drink with no milk or sugar. This tea gets better every time I drink it.
Way too much mint. This is not my cup of tea. The spearmint overpowers everything else thats in this tea. I’m hoping I can find someone to give this tea to. I really don’t see myself drinking it again.
I know this tea is rated high on Steepster, but I really didn’t care for it much. I love earl grey teas, but this one just seemed to be too mellow for me. I tried steeping anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes but had no luck at all. I even tried temps from 170 – 210. The tea just had no bite for me. I think the creme flavor this tea had just turned me off.
I really like this tea. Its organic which is a plus and I can buy it cheap at Walmart, another plus. Its really good without milk and only 1/2 tsp raw cane sugar. I will be buying more of this tea. Now if I could only find their Earl Grey I would be happy.
This tea is one of my favorites. Its a light black tea with subtle flavors that is easy to drink without milk. Its not bitter or overpowering. I usually drink this tea in the afternoon when I need to unwind.
I only drink this tea in the morning as its quite strong by my standards. I have to add sugar and soymilk as this is the only way I can drink it. PG is not an everyday tea for me but it really wakes you up in the morning.
This tea is a ok tea by Darjeeling standards. Its good, but not as good as other Darjeeling I have drank in loose tea form. But this tea is easy to fix as its a tea bag. Easy to find and wakes me up in the morning. It is however one of the better Darjeelings in tea bag form.
This is the first earl grey I ever drank and is also my favorite. The amount of bergamot in the brew seems almost perfect to me. I really enjoy this tea.
I like this tea as the leaves are actually aged in bergamot oranges, they don’t add the oil to the leaves. I think this makes a more subtle cup of earl grey as the bergamot doesn’t seem as strong as other earl greys I have drank. This is not one of my favorite Earl Greys, but it will do in a pinch.
