This is one of the few teas where over-steeping really does ruin the tea for me (hey, I’m forgetful, and the internet is full of distractions).
I always end up buying this tea at the train station, and it’s one of the few teas sold on-the-go in my area that doesn’t taste like sorrow and buyer’s regret. It’s good, standard Earl Grey, just do not let it steep too long or it will taste horrible.

Bio

I study at uni, and I drink a shitton of tea. I do more of the latter than the former.

I am currently having an intense, passionate love affair with lapsang souchong. I live with two really crappy landlords right now, but I am never going to hold any lingering resentment against my landlady because she introduced me to lapsang.

That being said, Earl Grey will always be my first love. I also unexpectedly fell for Darjeeling, which was quite the surprise!

The only tea I’ve ever truly disliked is English Breakfast. I know it’s intended to be consumed with milk and sugar, but I always drink tea straight (or with one sugar) and I will forever be scarred by memories of a 5-day trip to Paris where bagged EB was the only tea I could get my hands on. (Paris was great though, bad tea aside!)
