Lovely, refreshing Earl Grey. Thanks Teavana.

A modern turn on a world classic taste, this lighter and brighter Earl Grey has uplifting apricot nuances and tartly orange flavor from the elite and robust bergamot. All balanced with a smooth infusion of top shelf, superior white tea featuring less caffeine than our regular black Earl Grey tea.
Light and refreshing with fragrant bergamot citrus.
Use 1.5-2 tsp of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 175 degrees (79 degrees Celsius) and steep for 2 minutes. For stronger flavor, use more tea leaves. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ingredients: White tea, artificial flavoring, marigold petals

It’s an interesting take on an Earl Grey. Once again it was recommended by one of the employees (from the reviews this seems to be a trend). The combination goes together pretty well, and it’s a nice change from a black Earl.
Actual first steep time was 3 minutes (IE 9 seems to be having problems dragging the bar…).
All in all a nice change, but not an everyday tea for me.
What possessed me to set the timer for three minutes? In any case, two and a half minutes is way too long to steep this. It got decidedly tannic and rough.
Also, 6 gr a bit light – 8 gr might be better.
8 gr, 2:00: still fairly rough – drinkable but not really enjoyable.
Same exact flavor at 1:00! What is with this tea?!
If it can’t turn out some lovely, bergamotty goodness at thirty seconds it’s going in the trash…
