6 Tasting Notes
I like this tea a lot! And not just because the company is located in the town I was born in. It’s very citrusy and smooth. Some teas are very unforgiving when you over steep them. I HATE bitterness. So the first cup I did my usual 4 min. It was good but almost too….pretty tasting. Don’t know how else to explain it. The cornflowers maybe? Perhaps someone could leave a comment that would shed some light on things. Anyway, the next cup I left for 5 min…..Really good! I may even try for a bit longer next cup. There’s doesn’t seem to be any need to worry about bitterness with this tea. Just full, rich earl grey goodness :)
This was my first experience with chamomile and I wasn’t really a big fan. It smells ok…..smells like flowers (Because it is). Didn’t make me want to spit it out or anything…..just didn’t make me want to finish the cup either. Ended up pouring it out and making a nice cup of Earl Grey.
I normally only like teas that I don’t have to add anything to. This one is not so great on it’s own. Mostly taste the spice but not the black tea. BUT if you make a latte out if it, it’s awesome!! I mix in some raw honey and sugar and then froth some milk in my french press. Excellent desert tea.
Recently made the switch from coffee. It’s not that I’ve never had tea….just never drank it on a regular basis until now. We have the Bigelow Earl Grey K-Cups at work and I decided to give it a try. I’ve had many different kinds of tea before but never an Earl Grey. But I figured, if it’s good enough for Picard it’s good enough for me! I was pleasantly surprised to a bold earthy flavor that made the transition from coffee seem effortless. I’ve had this tea in bags as well and it has the same, now familiar, soothing taste. I look forward to delving deeper into the world of tea and I will always credit this Earl Grey for giving me a push in the right direction.
