It’s that time again: TEA TIME!!! Today I’m going with a classic: Earl Grey.

The dry leaves bring back memories of Paris when my friend, Juanita, and I stayed with a French family for a week before going off to the Cannes Film Festival for the first time. Beautiful, luscious earl grey!

The family we stayed with drank this tea out of bowls instead of cups! At the time, we thought it was a French thing. We came to learn it wasn’t, which just led us to believe we had stayed with one weird French family! Now I think they were probably just fine lovers of good tea.

But I digress while impatiently waiting for the tea to cool. The brewed tea’s aroma is heaven! It tastes sweeter than expected, which is a pro for me. I find Twining’s Earl Grey to be a little strong for my tastes.

This tea goes great with a little honey. Just a little though, or it overpowers the core flavor of what makes this tea distinctly Earl Grey.

Simply put: it’s perfect! It’s exactly what I wanted and expected, and I can’t help but be enveloped with memories of a summer exploring Paris with one of my best friends.

For the longest time, this was my favorite Earl Grey, until I tried the Earl Grey from thepuriTea. Now this one is neck and neck with thepuriTea’s Earl Grey. Oh… and of course, there’s Lord Bergamot from Steven Smith…

I definitely like this one more than Twinings’ version.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
