32 Tasting Notes

I love tea, and hot black tea is my daily necessity. I have tried so many different types of black teas for my mornings, English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, bagged, loose, those-triangle-baggies, you name it, and Bigelow’s Earl Grey is one of my favorites.

I know some purists upturn their noses at bags, but I am a complete zombie in the morning and rely on my tea to keep me alive, and this no-fuss bag is how I accomplish just that.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 8 min or more

since you like earl grey i would NOT recommend the earl grey white by teavana…i cant drink black tea because of all the caffeine so i thought id try the white, and the taste is just TERRIBLE. so…fyi ;)

Yes, you are so right! Their Earl Grey White is just awful. Shame, because it smells so nice and my husband so thoughtfully bought me quite a bit of it.

Thanks! It’s my first and only blog kinda thing, so it’s a hot mess right now. Not sure what I want to do with it.

I received this as a sample in another purchase, as this is not the type of tea I normally drink. It was quite underwhelming and I nearly spit it out. It did not mix with my palette at all.

Profile

Bio

My favorite teas are black, oolong, peppermint, jasmine, and chamomile, Earl Grey being the love of my tea-life. I dislike reds – rooibos, spearmint, chrysanthemum, peach, overly sweet fruit teas such as passionfruit, and usually chocolate and vanilla flavored teas.
