Hm. The lemon is very very prominent here. It’s still an Earl Grey, as EG has a pretty citrusy flavor anyway, but I can taste the lemongrass in particular and it’s a little weird to me. I think I’ll like it better blended with a little vanilla tea for a creamier flavor. G liked it as is, but he’s a big lemon fan.
It’s interesting, but I’ve had EG variations I liked better. To clarify: I’m disappointed that I tasted more lemongrass than anything else. I was hoping/expecting it to be somewhat floral, but I really didn’t notice the jasmine or cornflower.2nd steep was drinkable but weak, better for drinking plain (1st steep was too harsh for me to drink plain).
1.1g, 3.5oz, 2nd steep 6 minutes
