I had a sample sachet of this from my friend who works at Starbucks and gets free boxes of Teavana teas each week. It has been sitting there for a few months, and it is time I drank it.
Because I was super tired this morning, I wanted something caffeinated, and I know Teavana uses a heavily caffeinated black base for their Earl Grey. I can’t help wishing it was lavender Earl Grey or Earl Grey Cream because I prefer something a bit more interesting, but it was still good enough. A step above most bagged EGs for sure.
I brewed it with 2 tsp cashew milk and a pinch of brown sugar, which makes Earl Grey more palatable for me. Otherwise I find it too bold. The bergamot was there, the blend hinted at orange/citrus, and it was a decent cup.
