I don’t really have any of my smart arse comments to start off with for this tea, so this will probably be one of the shortest if not the shortest review I do on a tea.
Dry this tea looks almost like confetti or something, the black tea leaves are contrasted by colorful pieces from I am assuming the cornflower and bergamot, it has a very pleasing smell on the nose, typical Earl Grey but with a aroma of cream suggesting this tea is smooth. I didn’t really notice much change in aroma while steeping it, nor did it appear as if the leaves did any fancy blooming or anything.
The final brew was out right awesome, we all grew up at some point probably drinking cup after cup of Earl Grey from Twinning’s or something like that, well this guy is like the bigger brother, it honestly took my opinion of Earl Grey back where it should be. I drank so much of the aforementioned Twinning’s Earl Grey that I almost hated Earl Grey.
Everyone should have an Earl Grey in their cupboard, most people who are not well versed with tea will generally ask for Earl Grey or Orange Pekoe so why not treat them well and really mess them up when they go back to the cheap bagged stuff, by brewing a nice loose leaf tea!
