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.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

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.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

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.

drank Darjeeling Tea by Twinings

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.

drank Earl Grey by Twinings

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.

drank Aged Earl Grey by Numi Organic Tea
429 tasting notes

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.
