drank Lady Grey by Twinings
7 tasting notes

Given it a second chance: Water off the boil, steeped for 4:15, touch of splenda and dash of milk… better. But I’m not in love..yet. I think this tea’s true companion is a slice of orange or lemon, as Twinings suggest. It may make a better iced tea and I’ll definitely try it again come the summer time in this fashion. It it a light Earl Grey and its lightness is probably why I’m not overly keen. I find the bitterness more pronounced than with The Earl Grey and the citrus subtles (but then, I have taken it with milk). I think my palate prefers stronger teas. Glad I didn’t write it off. But as I say, I’m not in love.
Will try it loose too, to see if that changes anything…
