This is the 20th review in the Battle of the Earl Greys!
This is the second of three samples provided by Mariage Frères, and the initial time I made it I thought it would also be the first disappointment. It took a little tweaking of the steeping process, but my last cup was darker, richer, and just about stole my heart! ;)
When I increased the amount of tea by 1/4 tsp and the steep time by 1 minute, this went from a weak floral black to a delicious Earl Grey with a kick. I don’t get it, but I’m not going to argue with a tea I enjoy this much.
