I have not had a good cup of Earl Grey tea in a long time. The bergamot is very present in this tea, and its enjoyable. Usually I have bagged Earl Grey tea, since that is what most places carry when I ask for tea (bleh). And in the bagged tea you never taste the bergamot and the black tea itself is kind of bland and bitter.

This tastes sharp and the bergamot is so zesty! I will definitely buy more when I run out of this.

Great post. I can almost taste it.

Earl Grey is a tea I don’t drink often, but when I’m in the mood for it, nothing else will do. But soooo many EGs are horrid. Good to know that David’s is on the ball again with their EG.

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me. I try to mostly short steep tea unless it only tastes better with a long steep. I’d rather experience what a tea tastes like over 3 or 12 steeps than just 1 to 3 long steeps.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

How I rate tea:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

85-89: Wonderful, couldn’t expect more but not a favourite.

80-84: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
