“Just had it in the morning”….
This is a good tea; unexpectedly good for something that comes from a generic brand! That being said, I find this tea a lot more temperamental than most of the other blends of Earl Grey I’ve tried. It’s good, especially for its price, and for me one 150g bag lasts close to a month. However, it also gets very dusty towards the end of the bag, which I fight off by shaking the dust out of the tea ball/tea infuser beforehand, but even after shaking it for a minute or two, I often find that the last four-five cups I get out of this tea leave dusty tea fanning residue on the botton of my cup. Not so good! I blame the packing, which is very pretty (Garant hired some great graphic designers for their teas!), but not so great at keeping everything fresh, so transfer it to a tin if you have one.
I was SO skeptical about this tea, having only bought it, on sale, because I figured I needed a few non-caffeinated tisanes around. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be fantastic! This unassuming, generically-named herbal tea is great in the evening, especially with a squeeze of honey.
This is what I’d give to anyone who is curious, but intimidated, by the prospect of a smoky black tea. The tea within the pyramid bags is far from dust, and is light enough to keep people who know little about loose leaf from choking on an over-full cup of lapsang. That being said, it still tastes like proper lapsang, with that great smoky scent wafting from the cup and lingering on after the cup’s been drained dry. Perfect for tea beginners, lazy folks, and those of us who have a bad habit of stuffing the tea ball with too many leaves.
