drank Earl Grey by Tetley
305 tasting notes

Last week I stayed a couple of nights in a hotel in Basingstoke. While the teabags offered in the tea tray in the room seemed a supermarket´s house brand (I need to look it up, but the labelling is very discrete indeed), the tea at the breakfast buffet was Tetley´s. The only black tea was this EG.
On the individually wrapped teabag it says “delicate and refreshing with a citrus hint of bergamot flavour”. Although it´s certainly not offensive in any way, it´s surely “delicate” ;-) and the “hint” of bergamot is extremely subtle. A shame, as it seems to be tea for those who don´t like tea.

I am glad that mine EG was better than yours. Though, it wasn’t perfect either!

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
