As a recent convert to tea, I don’t have much experience with other earl greys, so I’ll have to rate this with nothing to compare it to.
I find this tea to be mostly okay. It tastes better in the first few sips when it’s hotter, but the taste gets a bit too strong as it cools down. Not a huge fan of this.
This tea is a delightful blend of strawberry and has a beautiful aroma that is very distinctly fruity and sweet. This is yummy. I really love fruity teas and perfumes – and this is another one that I’m very drawn to.
This is one of those teas that I drink only once in awhile, because I find that the strawberry flavor is a bit too isolated – and pretty strong. I prefer blended teas with a mixture that arrives with a beautiful blend of ingredients like a beautiful chord played on the piano or with a symphony. I don’t like perfumes or teas where there appears to have one note played more sharply than the rest. This tea has a very blended, well balanced type taste. It steeps into a very deep, rich, red color.
This is my next fave chamomile tea next to Clipper. I really don’t taste any lemongrass though. It really just tastes like chamomile to me. I have bought more than 1 box. I always drink hot with a little honey at night.
I bought the giant 500 gram tin because I like living dangerously! I expected, for the price, that I would get a blah tea. But I have a theory that you become accostomed to what you drink and learn to prefer the flavor of whatever you have. I decided that after 500 grams of the stuff I would luuvv this tea! But I won’t be able to test that theory on this tea. Sadly, I really like this one on first taste. The tea base stands out and is fairly rich with malty goodness. My box of tea was not lacking in bergamot flavor but it is light. However, that light touch of bergamot compliments the maltiness of the tea in such a way as to suggest a little black pepper and camphor wòods. The tea is a little bitter and slightly tannic in a good way and the bergamot leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste without being perfumy. This is a pretty good cuppa for the price. In fact, I like it just as well as the much pricier Harney and Sons Earl Grey Supreme, which tastes similar.
The sites sliders do not play well with tablets so here are my brewing parameters:
7 grams tea, 500 ml water just off boil, steep 5 minutes. Really nice with a little milk.
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.
Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot, Drying, Soap
Smells like a sweet jammy cake before steeping, a truly mouthwatering smell. After steeping the strawberry aroma is less sweet. The taste itself is a little subdued with the strawberry being the main flavour coming through with the tea.
Flavors: Cake, Strawberry, Vanilla
A brisk, astringent, invigorating cup. Takes milk well. Blends well with other things, too—I especially like it with a little mint, tulsi, or lavender from my garden. Not that you have to put anything in it—it is delicious straight too and very versatile. Very reasonably priced, too, for the quality! I’ve been drinking this tea very happily for years.
Flavors: Astringent, Tannic
Ahmad Aromatic Earl Grey is my daily stalwart for at least a decade. The cut Ceylon black loose leaf is a robust, somewhat malty. Best in the 17.5 ounze – 500 gram white tin.
I enjoy a strong morning tea, and unlike any other, Ahmad Aromatic Earl Grey always serves up cup after cup a morning expectation; dare I say entitlement? Venerable.
Holds up to, nay, well withstands hunny and milk (I know, I know).
The bergamot is mild and somewhat generic. Though in a newly opened or nearly empty tin, the bergamot is strong. Must vapor away during my steep.
Flavors: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Malt, Nutty
