Is Earl Grey good for making iced tea?
Earl Grey is an excellent black tea. It blends the classic flavor of Indian black teas, like Darjiling, with the citrus flavors from bergamot oil.
Despite Earl Grey commonly being drunk hot, it does make for an excellent iced tea. I would also recommend sprucing the iced tea up with some blended blackberry puree. Not too much, just enough to hint the flavor. I also like to spruce up iced Darjiling with peach puree.
This past weekend I tried giving an iced Darjiling a watermelon twist, lightly sweetened with cane juice. The result was very refreshing! Sorry, I digressed.
Give iced Earl Grey a chance, you’ll be glad you did!
