So I totally impulse bought this at the store yesterday. Advertised as loose leaf on the go. But really it is a fancy looking tea bag. The tea is in a long stick shaped foil wrapper. There are very tiny perforations on the bottom 3/4 of the tea bag. The idea is you stir it in your hot water for 3-5 minutes then remove and drink.

The foil sticks smell like a traditional earl grey. On first putting it into the water, after about 3 seconds, I could see the orange colour of the Ceylon infusing into the water. I didn’t stir, but I left it there for 2 minutes. It created a light brown orange coloured liquid. It tasted very much like a traditional earl grey. I would consider the bergamot to be on the light side. It it blended well with the Ceylon base. Slightly sweet, not astringent. I could have used another minute of infusion time though, that might be why they instruct to stir with the stick. Overall a decent cup of earl grey, not the best, but certainly consumable.

I cut open the foil packet after I was done and there was tightly packed CTC tea. It did not have much room to expand because the foil stick was too small.

Essentially I find this to be a glorified tea bag. Which is unfortunate because the tea was not too bad.
