MY REVIEW BEGINS HERE

 

Here are my thoughts on this tea:

That Earl Grey brings a perfume scent with a mellow backing and that familiar Earl Grey flavor. No aftertaste and slight bitter flavor. The brew is a light brew liquor.

What I liked:

It’s an Earl Grey, need I say more? I like the depth of this tea and how dark of a brew it is a great morning tea or a wake me up mid afternoon tea.

What I did not like:

Not a thing.

 

Until next sip, pinkies up and face the wind! You’ve got this!

P.S. I’ve included an average brewing instructions chart below to help you brew your teas.

 

AVERAGE BREWING INSTRUCTIONS:

These are common instructions for brewing teas, however if the company suggests other brewing I will include it in the review section.

 

Time and Temperature Guide:

** As always stated by My Tea Vault, we think you should enjoy tea the way you like it, I like mine very strong with no sweetener, these are just guidelines and I suggest you use the guideline then adjust for your own tastes.
