I decided to do an Earl Grey challenge with the Earl Grey Teas I had to taste test, it sure is a small dent into the Earl Grey World but out of the four they had distinct tastes, so here we go!

This was a blind taste test challenge with Earl Grey teas from four different companies. This earl grey came in third. It’s a good tea and I won’t take anything away from that however compared to the other four this tea just seemed to be bland and had nothing unique about it. It’s a combination of two black teas from Ceylon and the Nilgiris. The website says it has added a natural bergamot but I really did not sense or taste any other flavoring.
Hot Tea Taste Facts:
This was a nice tea and hot it was good with a strong flavor and smooth, it’s strictly black tea with no outside flavors influencing it. It was also great with milk and iced as well.
Till next Tea….Earl
