10 Tasting Notes

Others here are right. It is one of the most powerful Earl Greys in term of scent out there. It can be easily overbrewed and turned it to harsh black liquid. One teaspoon for two cups of tea is definitely enough. If prepared properly, this tea tastes very well and pleasant. Fragrant but natural, strong yet soothing. It is all about how you prepare it.

Pure ceylon comes in teabags and loose leaf. Why you won’t add loose leaf?

Very gentle, smooth and easy going green tea. It has no astringency nor biterness. There is a hint of sweetness in the background. I recommend this green tea for people who dislike green tea for its distinctive taste.

Very strong, almost intoxicating aroma. Too much scent it overpowers the taste and smell of tea. Maybe they want to cover it on purpose? Because although claimed to be high quality Ceylon leaves it tastes rather flat and average.

Artificially flavored Earl Grey tea. The bergamot flavor smells weird and tastes even weirder. I had some stomach complaints after drinking it.

This tea is amazing. Oriental yet down to earth. Very comforting, warming and relaxing. Leafs are beautiful. Big, firm and meaty. Smell like tobacco, raisins, honey, dust. Amazingly found no astringency, no bitterness. Actually this tea is naturally sweet with a raisin aroma.. I recommend it to everyone who wants to try something different than regular Indian/Chinese teas.

Strong like a Londoner. This tea hits your taste buds like a brick. It has (too) intense aroma and very drying properties. Highly tannic and astringent. Not my favorite one. I am not into bergamot flavot so much and this tea is. Just overpowered with this scent. As strong as a cup of black coffee. Good substitute for your morning joe.

Intriguing even bit mysterious, romantic tea. It has smoky, woody aroma to it and smells like tobacco, honey. Mild taste and mild strenght. Good for late afternoons. One of my favorites all purpose tea.

A nice cup of Earl Grey. Fragrant, floral but delicate aftertaste. No astringency, no bitterness so common in many Earl Grey teas. Good tea for someone who isn’t into strong flavors.
