Pleasantly surprised by this tea we picked up on a quick trip through Pinehurst, NC recently. The Early Grey was a standout flavor, and the addition of the flavoring made it a nice treat on a 100 degree afternoon.
Lady Bedford’s was a suggested stop, and we arrived to discover a wide selection of loose teas available for purchase or sampling. As a coffee purist, I came to prefer single-origin choices over any number of flavored coffees, as the flavorings were often masking old or inferior beans. I carry that sentiment into my tea drinking adventures, and wouldn’t likely go out of my way very often to buy flavored tea.
That said, this tea is a flavorful Earl Grey with a wonderful aroma. I drank a couple of cups warm, then brewed and chilled a second pot for a full-bodied iced tea.
It’s currently in a drawer while I enjoy something from Western China.
Flavors: Caramel, Earl Grey, Molasses
