I tried this for the first time today. Before now, I had only had bagged Earl Greys (namely Bigelow, Twinings, and Tazo). I was really pleased by the taste of this Earl. It’s so incredibly smooth and doesn’t need any milk: the creme flavor in the tea does the job nicely, and the vanilla is a great touch. The cornflower makes it a rather pretty sight, and it smells great. I do wish it had just a bit more bergamot flavor, though.
I know this tea is rated high on Steepster, but I really didn’t care for it much. I love earl grey teas, but this one just seemed to be too mellow for me. I tried steeping anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes but had no luck at all. I even tried temps from 170 – 210. The tea just had no bite for me. I think the creme flavor this tea had just turned me off.
