5 Tasting Notes
I tried this on the recommendation of a friend who mentioned that she drank Lady Grey often while studying abroad in England. Since I’d had good luck with Twinings before, I picked up a box of this while at the grocery store yesterday.
At first sip, I was very pleasantly surprised by how much stronger the citrus tang in tea tea is. There is also a delicate sweetness to it. I can see myself drinking this throughout the rest of the summer as a pleasant morning treat.
I picked this tea up while it was on sale at my local Teavana recently for about $8/2 oz. I really like the light flavor of this tea especially for early summer mornings, though I’m not sure if I’ll restock this tea yet at its usual price of $12.
I really love this tea as a simple morning pick me up. I steep is for longer than the direction advise since I noticed that the listed times didn’t really impart enough flavor.
I really like the hint of mint in this tea. I find it great for a morning pick me up that leaves me feel focused.
I steeped for two minutes once water was boiling as per the box’s directions, but the tea came out tasting terrible. The tea has a very grassy odd undertone which was just very unappealing, and I didn’t even finish the whole cup of this.
