drank Earl Grey Royal by Tea Shop
277 tasting notes

This Earl Grey blend I DID buy in one of the Tea Shop shops in Madrid. Much more elegant in nose and in mouth than the “special” blend of which I just used a sample (see previous tasting note). Also this tea is supposedly beyond its best, but it still keeps up quite well : in nose the bergamot still reigns, with some tannic notes in the back; no extreme citrusy touches in taste, but a fine and balanced tea overall. As it seems “stronger” now than it was at first, I now use it as a breakfast tea which is just fine with winter coming up and just having used other breakfast teas.

Flavors: Bergamot, Tannin, Tea

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
