Morning Cup #39 - Pure Ceylon Earl Grey

Morning Cup Logo

In my cup this morning is a Pure Ceylon Earl Grey from Dils Tea/Tea Packs USA.

Earl Grey is difficult to get wrong. The astringency of the black tea is usually fairly average and combines with overtones of oil of bergamot, and orange-like fruit.

This particular Earl Grey isn't as strong as most. I'm not sure whether to rate that as a positive or negative because I'm not sure I'm open minded on it at the moment.

The aroma is clean and crisp enough and provides the expected notes. The flavor is light, only slightly astringent and leaves a citrusy tinge on the tongue in the finish.
