I have mixed feelings about this one. I like my teas to have a lot of strong flavour, especially my Earl Grey where I am looking to feel that kick of beragmont. This particular tea definitely delivers on strong flavour, which is why I continue to drink it (also because I happen to have a lot of it…) However, this particular Earl Grey has a weird bitterness and astringency that I can bear but cannot ignore. I usually brew this tea with fewer leaves and a shorter steep time to try and counter-act it, but it doesn’t completely get rid of that artificial-tasting metallic(?) tangyness.
Because it’s the best Earl Grey I’ve got right now, I’ll just have to drink it until its gone.
