good quality and full of flavour
The Earl Grey Superior is well named; the flavour is superior.
Really enjoyable tea, a classic earl grey but with a twist.
Wow! Could not believe you could recreate the taste of gingerbread in a tea, but I was wrong.
The cheaper Earl Grey is also good, but if you're sensitive to bitter tastes this is the one to get--you can infuse it for two minutes without any bitterness coming through. Fantastic tea.
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...
