8 Tasting Notes
Just steeped to directions and enjoying a cup right now. I am liking the idea of a green tea with subtle chai overtones. It isn’t overpowering at all but smooth, elegant, and PERFECT on a 2 degree F morning before you have to go out back and split some wood. I had this the other evening and wasn’t too impressed but I think my palette had been flooded from dinner. This morning, however, it is grand and I foresee this as a staple in my cupboard.
Steeped for 3 minutes but forgot to try it with a little almond milk this morning (oops)! Earl Grey is growing on me and I can’t wait for all the samples I’ve ordered this week to arrive from KallyTea and Upton Tea!
First cup last night was exquisite! Love this green tea although I honestly have really only had bagged green tea in the past.
It’s been a while since I had an Earl Grey. This is not overwhelming but a definite aftertaste of bergamot. It’s a clean taste although I’ve never added milk to a tea. I will try to add a little Almond breeze Original to it tomorrow morning and see how it is. I’m just about out of my emperor’s mist green tea.. :\
Perfect after hot shower and along with ambient music after a long day :)
