3 Tasting Notes

90

This is my personal favourite Earl Grey rendition.

The cornflower petals and orange zest contribute to a delightful appearance. The aroma promises a full bergamot flavour, which the liquor delivers in company with smooth, rich Yunnan black tea and mellow orange. I have most appreciated this tea with a good novel on a lazy weekend. I imagine anyone fond of Earl Grey would appreciate it, especially given the use of genuine bergamot oil.

This is a solid Sri Lanka black tea. From what people tell me, it’s the sort of tea that tastes and smells just like what the most people think a black tea ‘normally’ tastes and smells like. I quite enjoy it with chocolate, biscuits, or anything sweet to calm the astringency.

This is a nice, dependable Earl Grey rendition – a good one to have on hand for visitors and best accompanied by some baked goods (scones, I’d say). The fruit and floral elements are balanced well in the taste, but maybe a tad overpowering in the aroma.
