77
drank Lady Grey by Twinings
29 tasting notes

So today was a particularly dismal day, dark skies then pouring rain, and there’s that added sadness of having to write a paper. I figured I needed something to lift my moods up a bit, and after rummaging through my pantry I found this stashed into a corner, along with a tin of Earl Grey, behind the seasonings.
Since we’re out of milk (yes, how sad), I went with Lady as I only drink EG with milk.

Pretty reddish-brown coloring at the end of 3 minutes.
Smells nice, a little bit flowery.
Tastes lighter than Twinning’s EG, and with citrus flavors, very soothing.
A bit astringent, and it does get more so if you accidentally leave it in the pot for long.

I got around 5 steeps out of it, but it did start to get weak on the second steep.
