Review of Earl Grey

8 of 104 of 53 of 578 of 100

Cup at home, made from a sachet containing fine, wiry leaves pf Chinese black tea sprinkled with bergamot oil and lychee aroma. Pours nearly clear dark copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of black tea (Keemun?), with notes of bergamot oil and very mild hints of fruit. Ditto flavour, although the lychee nuances are somewhat more pronounced than in the aroma. Rather astringent palate with a leafy aftertaste of black tea and touches of bergamot. A decent Earl Grey, indeed, possibly the best one I have had so far. Quite an expensive one, too (110 DKK for 30 sachets), but I was lucky to get a package of 30 sachets from a friend.
