This is a solid black tea. The leaves have a rich aroma which I love. Be careful not to add too many leaves though, the tea can get bitter very quickly so the amount of tea leaves you add is crucial! I like drinking it black and straight up so maybe adding milk would make it less bitter.

Recently I made Earl Grey Gin! It was amazing. I left the tea leaves in the Gin for over 24 hours so it did end up bitter. I’m going to try it again and steep it for a few hours instead of overnight next time but still a great overall flavor! It tasted like unsweetened iced tea. I’m excited to continue perfecting a recipe over the summer!!

Definitely try it for a few hours! I did the same with a raspberry honey black tea – try tasting as you go, I found even after a few hours it got too bitter. Good luck! Drunk on tea :D

Most of my childhood was spent drinking earl grey tea and I loved every minute of it. I’ve now been able to discover all kinds of teas, but earl grey still plays a large role in my everyday life. Now I mix it up starting with black tea and moving to green throughout the day. My new favorite is Jungle Juju! Really the best I’ve had so far and I’m on a mission to find something equally as good!

I have to say I either really love a tea or I hate it. Sometimes an inbetweener but if I’m not in love with it I probably won’t have it again.

I also like to knit with a nice cup of tea.
