6 Tasting Notes
I see some not so great reviews on this one so maybe I’m by myself here but I loved this tea. I don’t really like super strong chai teas, they have too much of a spicy flavor so I think that’s why. I’m so upset that I can’t find it anymore! I’ve been using the Bigelow regular Spiced Chai with some vanilla extract. The only thing I do have to say is that I agree with some people saying that milk cancels out the flavors.
I’m an Earl Grey fanatic and I found this in my cupboard when I had ran out (it was in one of those variety packs) so I decided to try it out. It actually surprised me at how much I liked it! It’s like a less harsh Earl Grey with prominent tones of citrus/lemon. Even if it’s lighter, it’s definitely not ‘weaker’. Steep it for 4-5 minutes and it’s perfect. So nice and refreshing for breakfast with a splash of milk.
Earl Grey is my favorite tea and it’s the kind of tea that I always have to have in my house. I got the loose leaf of this and it does it’s job. I really like it cause even if you steep it for a little longer than usual (that’s how my boyfriend likes it), it doesn’t get that tartness that black tea can get when over-steeped. Also, my favorite thing about Earl Grey is the bergamot and this has a definite bergamot flavor. Good to have at that mid-morning tea time with a splash of milk and some sweetener. I’m happy with it and will most likely purchase it again when I run out.
