The bags are pyramid shape and see through organza.
Ingredients: Black tea, Orange & Lemon Peel, Cornflowers, Oil of Bergamot & Lemon Essence.
Opening the packet gave a punch of scent, this is one of the strongest Earl Greys I have sniffed. It’s thick, sweet and perfumed though natural smelling. Perhaps slightly soapy because it’s so strong but in a nice way.
Steeping for 3 minutes in boiling water with a splash of soy milk.
It smells as strong and perfumed as it’s raw scent.
Flavour also packs a punch in the first few sips. The black tea is malty and rich before a thick and perfumed meld of bergamot and orange explodes on the tongue with some sweetness and dryness.
As it cools the perfume quality lessons but it’s still big on flavour.
It has to be one of the strongest Earl Greys I’ve experienced, period. Especially considering it’s pre-bagged. Despite being in a bag this tea did not disappoint. I love strong tea and this fit the bill. It had strength, character, charm and easy drinkability. Frankly everything I look for in an Earl Grey. It’s strength makes it perfect for a builders brew.
If you love strong Earl Grey then this is definitely worth a try.
