Someone sent a bag of this to me in a card. It is too late for anything caffeinated, so I pulled this out.
It made a very strong tisane in my small japanese cup (a little bigger than a juice glass). Drank a bit hot, and it’s pretty good, but I get the usual “wet washrag” taste I get from most tisanes from it. Ice got rid of it though. I really need to try some decent quality loose tisanes – I think most of the time I have bagged ones – I wonder if I am tasting the bag. Hmm.
Anyway, I kinda like this, and wouldn’t refuse another cup. Would love to try a pitcher of it, really iced.
One of the best Earl Grey versions in the UK. So much better than Twinings. I drink a blend of this and another black tea – often Miles (a Devon tea and coffee merchant) or another Sainsbury’s black tea – such as Assam or Kenyan.
Poor cup of earl grey. Tangy taste of bergamot which in turn impaired the tea.
Just what I want in the afternoon, something which has a distinct flavour but at the same isn’t a heavy duty “wake up” tea like english breakfast. A lovely smoky edge from the Lapsang but doesn’t overdo it.
Red Label loose leaf is my everyday tea although I normally use it in a 3/4 to a 1/4 earl grey mix. Works great every time.
Nice flavour and nice colour plus can’t complain about the price.
A strong malty flavour verging on tar. Used a spoonful and drank it black after brewing with boiling water for 3 minutes. A tea that would best drank with milk and a little sugar possibly – Overpowering otherwise.
It’s another teabag work tea. Hot liquis and brown – definetly needs milk, but otherwise acceptable. It’s good that a main brand supermarket tea has gone FairTrade.
My every day tea..and really my favorite.
ERRGHH, the only tea left at work. it was like drinking mud, the colour of this matched it too, i dont even see how builders like this.
Keeps me going through the day. Just the aroma gives me a lift.
This tea has been polished off now. I let this get very strong and just added a bit more milk, but it worked okay. A little creamier than I would have like, but nice
I was feeling lazy…
I have this quite regularly at home as a standard black tea. It’s pretty good really, and my housemate Paul was pleased because I brewed it good and strong
Despite the fact that it’s an “own brand” tea, from the UK supermarket Sainsbury’s, this is my favourite Earl Grey tea. An excellent everyday tea.
My usual everyday tea when i’m working at home.
Was so busy doing work it had cooled a little too much by the time I got round to drinking it.
