Tea Reviews:
Bigelow - Earl Grey



This is my second brand of Earl Grey, and
I'm still not entirely satisfied with it.  I really want to like Earl Grey, but I'm not quite there yet.

Now, admittedly, this isn't my favorite tea.  But I liked it well enough, and a lot better than the Tazo version.  One thing that I liked is the fact that the bergamot isn't quite as strong in this one.  Don't get me wrong; it's still strong, but not as much as the Tazo.

I tried it black first, but ended up using a fair bit of sugar and milk.  I'm beginning to suspect that I just am not that fond of bergamot.  But, with the milk, it mellows out fairly nicely.  Then it's more tasty.

In short:  Decently strong bergamot flavor; I prefer it with milk and sugar.

 

Type:  Black tea (Flavored with bergamot)
 

Brewing Specifics:
-- 2 tea bags in a full 14 oz. mug
-- Pour boiling water in, cover, steep for 4 minutes
