Recent Tasting Notes
A slightly inconsistent mouthfeel and flavour profile with varying levels of astringency and a somewhat overpowering maltiness, but brisk enough to merit the unmistakeable branding of English Breakfast – for those who enjoy a strong cuppa in the morning :)
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Malt
when is an earl grey not really an earl grey? When it’s THIS earl grey. heh Another tea sent to me by alice that i was a little wary of. EG’s are not my favourite tea and this one smells VERY strongly of bergamot. However, after brewing this up, it’s not really like most other EG’s that i’ve had. It’s a little more floral..and the bergamot takes a back seat to things. overall not a terrible cup, but i’ll save the rest to pass on to a friend who loves EG’s :) thanks alice! it’s neat to see how different teas can be.
This was an emergency tea purchase at the supermarket because I ran out of tea before my next order arrived.
I’ve had had Earl Greys that pack a lot more bergamot punch than this, but often those teas loose some of the citrus complexity and taste a bit like washing up liquid. This tea has a nice balance, it is has a slight burnt sugar fragrance and lovely citrusy bergamot flavour with just a hint of caramel.
The more I sip this one the more I like it! Natural bergamot makes such a big difference to Earl Grey.
