35 Tasting Notes
Pretty average for a flavored green tea. It’s rather tart; there’s a lot of lemon/lemongrass flavor that really hits you with a blast of citrus right at the outset. Then followed by a fairly standard grassy green tea finish. Not a hint of apricot that I could discern. It’s fine, and drinkable, but probably not something I’d seek out again.
Flavors: Grass, Lemongrass
Really quite a nice Earl Grey. Lots of bergamot flavor that comes through. Some other Earl Grey teas I’ve tried have been more subtle, but I tend to like it a bit assertive, which Republic is. That said, it’s still nicely drinkable; the flavors are well-blended and not harsh at all.
I think this one was just too peppery for me. There were other flavors at the beginning of the sip, but the aftertaste was just peppery bite. Each subsequent time I made it I had a harder time drinking it until I just had to pour it out. Perhaps good for some, but I won’t make it again.
