use some other kind of tea leaves to provide a 'base' & use Earl Grey with it depending on your preference of how much of its aroma, taste and amount of brewing. So a half & half or two-thirds/one thirds 'blend'.. trial and error but by the first few times you're likely to have it down to exactly what and how you'd like it to be.
Ever try adding a pinch of Earl Grey to green tea?
best tea I've ever had was in russia... teavana comes pretty close. especially like chai and white teas. loose leaf is much better than the bags.
Teabags have the residue of tea laves after the leaves have been processed etc and selected for loose leaf blends first.. the midway house of the large-ish grains form. Grades of tea : Peet's Coffee & Tea
I adore tea, I'm pretty sure any problem can be resolved with a good cuppa. I drink a lot of 'regular' British tea served with milk, maybe 5-6 cups a day. But I am really partial to green tea, plus I always think green tea has a kind of relaxing quality to it. Maybe it's the lesser amount of caffeine, but it just has a very calming effect on me. Green tea with lemon works well I think.
Early Grey, Darjeeling, all good. The only thing I never liked so much, with some exceptions, are herbal teas. But then again, they are not actual teas technically speaking anyway, merely fruity and flowery imposters!
Might go make another cup now actually.
