4 Tasting Notes

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

My go to tea bag/sachet in wintertime. And my favorite, reasonably priced Harney and Sons. Although it has bergomot, it’s no Earl Grey. It’s far, far better. HIGHLY recommended.

So disappointing. I love Harney and Sons teas and I love English Breakfast, but this is 1 I simply cannot like. Bland, bitter, without complexity, and too “dark”. I’d rather drink coffee.

drank English Breakfast by PG Tips

PG Tips is among the best plain, black tea sachet (“bag”) you can buy. Only, I find that because of the large amount of tea per serving, and the quality, is ridicously easy to over steep and make it bitter. When I brew it in a pot, I usually put 1 bag per 1.5 mugs, or 2.25 tea cups. I love a good PG Tips, but a bad cup is just nasty.

Excellent with sugar and milk. If you like this, you need to try their even better PG Tips Special Blend. OMG, amazing but so hard to find.

Excellent, excellent Assam. Bit dark, and complex, but you won’t have finer.
