Culinary Teas Earl Grey Black Tea
A Superb Earl Grey Tea
Summary : This earl grey tea from
is, quite simply, a superb earl grey tea. The tea has no bitterness and
quite a bit of "kick" to it as well. If you like earl grey
tea, well, by all means...give this one a try.
Review : I love earl grey teas. Exactly why I do not
know. After all, I'm not a huge fany of "traditional black teas" in
many ways...I find the taste of a traditional black tea to be often too
strong with a nasty after-taste, along with some bitterness. Yet, I just
love earl grey teas. Perhaps because I'm a spice-a-holic, and a good
earl grey tea will have...or at least should have...some kick to it!

Here is how
describes this tea on their website : "An Earl Grey tea lovers Earl
Grey. Strong bergamot with bright citrus characters."
Well, my first encounter with this tea was certainly a pleasant one.

And indeed, this was a true earl grey tasting tea if there ever was
one. The tea once brewed has a beautiful coppery color to it. And the
taste, well, let's just say it beats the pants off of any bagged earl
grey tea you'll ever try. And the tea has a nice little kick to it, as
a good earl grey tea always should.
How about tea bitterness? There was none, simple answer.
Overall, for me at least at the time of this writing, this tea from
defines what a quality earl grey tea should taste like. It has a powerful
flavor, a nice little kick, no bitterness and a rather subdued yet pleasant
Recommendation : Yes. If you like earl grey teas, then
you'll love this tea. And if you haven't tried a earl grey tea yet...may
I make a suggestion? Make this tea your first earl grey tea tasting experience.
Too many supermarket brands of earl grey teas either taste wimply or
just plain bad. But this one defines what a quality earl grey tea tastes
like...so why waste money on cheap bagged versions?
