1/27/14 2nd tea of Earl Grey tasting. 1 bag/6oz/212F/3min. 1tsp sugar. 3min cool. The tea bag smelled pleasantly of bergamot, but there was little of the scent to the brewed tea. The liquor was very pretty, a deep red gold, and had a gentle bergamot taste over a faintly astringent pleasant black tea. The sugar enhanced the florals as it came into play. I brewed this to the standard, but it would definitely be improved by a longer steep, and using a second bag. The most enjoyable tea of the flight. Thanks to Tea Junkie for this sample!
