I can’t seem to get this tea to taste as described. I’ve brewed several cups now and each one is bitter. Too bad really, I like the concept.

“Wonderful aroma but easy to overbrew. I overbrewed it atleast 3 times and each resulted in a somewhat bitter concoction. Get it right and it’s exactly the way you want it.” Read full tasting note
“The smell was surreal, and the taste was good as well. The tea is great value for your buck.” Read full tasting note
“Wiry leaves with a citrusy aroma (it smells super) and a balanced taste. Equally good with/without honey. Super cheap as well — I would happily pay twice the price for the same tea.” Read full tasting note
Chai & Mighty’s proprietary take on the classic Earl Grey, The Earl’s Pearl has a highly fragrant aroma and its subtle flavours are reminiscent of the Nilgiris hills when brewed. A rare, long leaf Earl Grey, this tea can be further flavored using lemon and/or mandarin peels (recommended) and can be re-brewed up to 3-4 times.

This tea is amazing! One of the most fragrant teas I have ever experienced and had a slight tartness to it that gave the tea an excellent flavour composition. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Other info: Had it without milk and re-brewed to make iced tea as per instructions.
Flavors: Floral, Lemon
Thoroughly enjoyed this Earl Grey which was so starkly different from others I’ve had in the past. Delightfully long loose leaf tea with a powerful aroma that I’ve rarely come across before, this tea was impressive even before the brew. And when brewed, it did not disappoint. Excellent in flavour and consistently, the brew yielded a light yet rich yellow/golden hue which was exceedingly pleasant. I cannot recommend this tea enough to do it justice!
Flavors: Bergamot, Floral, Lavender, Lemon Zest
