After a cold and wet walk we ended up in a pub trying to shelter from the elements. As it was lunchtime we decided to stay for a bite to eat. I ordered our food and decided I needed warming up with a nice cup of tea. Luckily they had earl grey. Of course I asked for it milk free. I grabbed my mug and sat down.

The tea soon changed the hot water to a light brown colour. What I noted was the lack of aroma coming from my mug. I gave it a subtle sniff and nothing. I expected to be able to smell a hint of bergamot. I sipped the tea, no real flavour noted. It was as if I was drinking a weak black run of the mill tea. I left the teabag in the mug to continue to infuse with the hot water. This made the tea a little stronger but not significantly. I continued to sip on my tea. I was still unable to taste the bergamot or any real flavours to this tea. I was personally disappointed by this tea. It simply lacked any flavour or aroma.

Sorry Tetley but I have no plans to purchase a packet of these teabags and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone who enjoys a nice cup of earl grey.
