drank Earl Grey Lavender by Tea Cozy
470 tasting notes

Whoo, this is the first time I’ve been able to write anything on Steepster in DAYS. I’m going through withdrawal. I’m backlogging this from 3 days ago or so, and my memory is a little fuzzy, but I remember liking it! This is sadly also the last tea I had. Yes, 3 days ago! The horror. I got food poisoning and then had some weird vitamin deficiency from the food poisoning and now… I don’t even know, but somehow I am still sick. My luck is the worst. ;~;

Anyway, this is another from the box from LiberTeas. I was jonesing for something comforting and familiar, and lavender earl grey is one of my absolute favorites. This is an excellent blend, not too floral and the lavender is well-balanced with the bergamot and the base, which is nice and mild. I actually ended up drinking the third steep first and it was still quite flavorful! (I got overly nervous that the milk was bad in the first cup, and the second I steeped for 5 minutes and it was ungodly bitter)

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
