Tending Toward Tea
Tetley - Earl Grey

Ingredients: Orange pekoe and orange pekoe cut black tea, natural bergamot flavor with other natural flavors, and caramel color.

Tea format: Individually packaged and sealed drawstring bags.

Where to get it: I found this tea at Shaw's, our local grocery store chain. You can visit Tetley on the web here.

Comments: When I first tried this tea, the word that came to mind was "tinny." It's strong, so I recommend brewing in a mug-sized cup as opposed to a tea cup. Tetley has implemented a drawstring tea bag which allows you to squeeze the water out of your tea bag without touching it. Not bad. This tea doesn't seem to be very high on the bergamot count. It has the right level of astringency. No bad aftertaste. I can't make up my mind whether it should be a 3 or 4 star tea, but it is not a 5.
