This is one of the better Earl Grey teas I’ve had, since it’s not too heavy on the bergamot. I really have to be in the mood for it. It’s still snowy and cold here, and I really gravitate toward blacks when that’s the case, but I decided I wanted something with a little flavor, too. This is fitting the bill.

Windchills of 13 below. Snowing. This calls for a no-nonsense, malty black.

Absolutely. Bundle up! Got a good blankie?

Oh, yeah! I’ve got several good blankies!

Home last night after all the Turkey Day feasting and festivities, I decided this would be a nice finish for the day. Indeed it was.

The last time I tried this was at school and I royally botched the steeping (both too long and too hot), rendering it undrinkably burnt and bitter. So last night I brewed it at home, where I could brew it properly.

It’s much better the second time around, and certainly interesting. It’s not a tea I’d want a lot of, or want often, and it’s not one at this point that I’d probably buy more of. I’m kind of a hard sell on green teas, unless they have a roasted flavor, and I’m getting that slightly bitter vegetal aftertaste on the back end of this that turns me off of greens. I think I’d like something like this much better if it had a black base.

Still just a smidge under the weather, so just a mug of cheap tea to comfort me. This is one of the only bagged teas I even consider at the grocery store. Pretty standard and hard to muck up when steeping.

aww man…. i was looking for that the other day at a Canadian/polish grocery store called “Starskys”. i could not find this exact tea so i had to substitute it with an “HYLEYS Scottish Red Pekoe” :(

glad you liked it though :) what was the flavor and aroma?

dragondrool

Just the average typical bagged black tea aroma, and fairly malty in flavor. It’s just a decent bagged black tea, overall.

I would be drinking this right now. But my stainless steel Thermos mug is being much too excellent at keeping it way too hot. I brewed this almost three hours ago. A half hour ago I took a tester sip and about scorched the tip of my tongue off. I think it’s a perfect steep, but I won’t know until the tingling sensation goes away and I dare to sip again. :)

I hate the tinglies :(

If you let it cool down you can taste the flavour better too
