Got craving for some Earl Grey so rushed to the local Walmart acquired some Tbags and fancy Wholefoods but didn’t find any Harney or other English goods.

We have here: Bigelow, Twinnings, Numi all Tbags and some loose Republic of tea Earl Greyer.

In 3/4 cup water, steeped for 2.5min
Upped RoT EG to 3.5g cause 2g was nothing

Bigelow Earl Grey– good flavor, aroma, medium bergamot, my pick from these … Even tho it’s still weak in the flavor…
Numi Earl Grey– can feel the Assam tannin already, low bergamot, no go, will probably use to mix w milk.
Twinnings Earl Grey– too much citrus for me, med bergamot.
Republic of tea Earl Greyer– meh, med-low bergamot at 3.5g used, low aroma. 6.5g used in 3/4cup… No change, and getting some tannin…i think this is just stale
