Palace Earl Grey
I've just tried my last Tea Palace tea from the trio and I can say that for each one i'm glad I have the rest of the caddy to look forward to. There was enough for me to try this Earl Grey in different infusion strengths and I noticed the stronger the brew, the richer the bergamot taste. All Earl Greys have bergamot but I prefer the quality loose leaf blends like this one, rather than the teabag ones, which i'd describe as 'bergamot with a hint of tea'!
"Our Earl Grey tea is a blend of only the finest China black tea and natural oil of bergamot, pressed from real bergamot citrus fruits. Palace Earl Grey is a delicious, classically flavoured black tea with a sophisticated, aromatic taste."
It's strange looking on the website as the tea in their picture looks a lot greener than it does in my picture! Anyway, I brewed this up in my teapot and surprisingly when I left the infuser in it didn't go bitter at all - lovely. I found it to be a well-rounded, spring fresh blend almost like Oolong in flavour, surprisingly sweet, smooth and warming. The natural bergamot was subtle, at least until a stronger infusion. I enjoyed it in the garden now the sun's come out, with a couple (ish!) of Jaffa cakes.
You can order this Palace Earl Grey from £4.50 for a sample caddy or up to £14.00 for a 200g caddy. I'd probably gamble on it if you like loose leaf Earl Grey, as i'm impressed with all the Tea Palace teas so far!
