Spotted this at the Middle Eastern grocery store and thought it would make a nice base for decaf earl grey lattes. I love earl grey tea but don’t have it that often as I really only crave it – and black tea in general – in the evening when I’m trying to avoid caffeine.
Teabag smelled like Lipton. A wee bit of bergamot peeks through while steeping but the aroma is nothing close to that of loose leaf earl grey. Steeped for 5 minutes using boiling water. The tea concentrate was tannic and artificial tasting. Adding milk and sugar did improve things. However the flavor pales in comparison to the Adiago Earl grey I’ve been using for lattes lately. May need to double up on the teabags next time or use less milk.
