Review of Pret A Manger Earl Grey Tea

After a cold and wet morning in London I was desperate for a nice comforting cup of tea. I needed a cup of earl grey tea. As we were due to get the train home I popped into Pret for my tea. Now I’ve never had a cup of tea from here before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I requested my black tea and grabbed the takeaway cup to drink on my journey home.
On opening my cup I was pleasantly surprised. There was a large muslin style teabag in the cup. I was immediately hit by nice comforting aroma of bergamot. I had to remove the tea from the cup so that it didn’t become too strong for me to enjoy. On studying the tea I could clearly see the different elements to the tea leaves inside, pretty impressive. I merryingly sipped on my tea trying not to spill as the train bumped up and down. I could clearly taste the bergamot interlaced in this tea. It was spot on, not to strong or artificial but just enough to entice my taste buds.
I found the tea to be highly refreshing and it certainly hit the spot. In fact it was one of the nicest cups of earl grey that I have drunk from a coffee shop chain. I had a quick look at their website and it is described as an organic ceylon black leaf tea which is infused with a delicate organic bergamot flavour. It is also fair trade, which is always a bonus.

I would definitely recommend that if you like a nice cup of tea like me that you give this tea a try. So thank you Pret for producing a really nice cup of earl grey tea. I will certainly be back for more in the future.
