A lovely tea that releases warm, honied, fragrant flavours and scents as you drink it!
Tea preferences are, to a large extent, a matter of taste! Thought it might be useful to give my opinion on what the difference is between the 2 Earl Greys. They are both good. A lot of teas I've tried have a "dusty" taste - these don't. You can taste the Assam tea in the 'regular' Earl Grey (a slightly malty/stronger brew) and it's got quite a strong bergamont taste. The "superior" is lighter/more subtle but also very good. I can't say i prefer one over the other. It depends what I feel like. But I would recommend the tea and the Shibui service.
Love this tea! I I have only bought it in 100g pack so far as am trying to go plastic free. The delivery was super fast and I loved the free trial teabags.
My favourite for breakfast. Really excellent Earl Grey.
This is my favourite tea - completely delicious! The bergamot is unbelievably fragrant. It is my one true love
It has been a long time since we have found such a good quality tea that lives up to all the expectations of taste and flavour. Real leaf tea to be brewed in a clean pot and good water at the right temperature. Exceptional.
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
