Meh, it isn’t great, but I could drink this if forced to.

Dearest Earl Grey:
I believe you don’t have the right to be in my cupboard anymore. Your wife, Lady Grey, may stay. Maybe I understeeped or oversteeped you. But, hey, my stepfather likes you!

Preparation
Boiling

Notes before tasting:

Awesome, sort-of sharp smell
Got it in Black Tea Variety Pack
Other teas in pack are Irish Breakfast, English Breakfast, and Lady Grey.
Bought seperately: English Afternoon.

Tasting:

Well, without further ado…
Extremely light, with a really good citrusy aftertaste
Best without milk, but with just a pinch of milk it is OK.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

drank Lipton Black Tea by Lipton

It’s an okay cuppa. Also, it was the first of two teas I drank at Sue Kolve’s Salon. I guess, it’s just basically a CUP O’ TEA. Sadly, I don’t believe it’s Chinese or British-made but for an American cup it’s good.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 45 sec

A great cuppa to wake you up, definitely. I added a small amount of milk and it tasted like, well, BLACK TEA. Either way, freaking great tea, you can bet I’ll buy more from Twinings.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

drank Genuine Green Tea by Pickwick
16 tasting notes

This was a good tea, but when I steeped it, it put on a rather different colour than I expected…Adding milk did nothing to the taste, which is almost exactly like black tea, with the addition of an aftertaste.

Preparation
2 min, 30 sec
