Luxe Earl Grey Black Tea

Luxe Earl Grey Black Tea
I've been drinking this Luxe Earl Grey Black Tea for some time now. It comes in 2 g (.07 oz.) silken bags. I think the silken bags offer a much better flow than the standard paper tea bag.

I brewed two samples of this tea for the review. One with a three minute steep, the second with a four minute steep. The four minute steep was definitely to long as it produced a bitter cup. On the other hand three minutes seems perfect.

Starting with a warm cup, after three minutes the cupped  tea is a nice dark amber color with a light aroma of black tea. The tea is bold and smooth with a medium mouth feel. There is no bitterness or bite and it's delicious without sugar, cream or lemon added.

Flavor wise, I feel this Luxe Tea is a great black tea, but it lacks as an Earl Grey. There is little to no Bergamot Orange flavor and little to no spice.

Rated 2.5 out of 5
