Have been looking for more flavoured caffeine free blends for ages (trying to go caffeine-free in pregnancy!). This one was not like a "true" earl grey - you could definitely taste the redbush too - but made a lovely change and felt like a real treat with afternoon tea scones!
I really like this tea, the balance of the bergamot is just right, and it's light, perfect for multiple cups per day. As rooibos leaves are quite small you will need a fairly fine mesh on your infuser / teapot.
I agree with Rachel B. I love the Rooibos Earl Grey and reuse the same infuser or teapot of leaves several times each day. I usually buy my teas at the Tugboat shop in Truro ( I buy tea from nowhere else now) and this was the first time I used the online/delivery service - Covid 19 seems to have caused several changes in lifestyle that may become permanent - and the delivery and service were spot on. But I do love the shop so, when I may, I shall return to the Truro shop and the friendly service we get there.
Fantastic flavour - soft and bright and refreshing - caffiene free, less waste/packaging, can refresh the leaves for multiple teapots from same infusion/strainer. When we run out and have to go back to the supermarket bags it makes you realise what a fantastic red bush/rooibush earl grey this is :-) and tugboat are fantastically speedy with your order too :-). Keep up the good work tugboat teas!
This is light, refreshing and just the balance of sweetness and fragranced. So much better than the supermarket version. Of course it’s also teabag free so you can feel virtuous and refreshed!
