drank Earl Grey by Lupicia
558 tasting notes

Trying 1 tsp with 8oz boiling water steeped for 4 minutes. It’s amazing I have the alertness to even type this this morning. Getting up so early for work is always a struggle, seeing my shifts vary as I work in a restaurant. 3am always comes too soon!

This Earl Grey brews up a nice strong liquor of a deep brownish orange. It smells heavenly this morning, but any black tea might get that reaction! This is a sample I received from Ricky, and I am excited to compare it to other Earls I have tried. Just not this morning…need a few more cups first!

Greatly scented of bergamot, this tea made me more alert while steeping it, it has a decent flavor without any additives, but a bit of bitterness (maybe 4 minutes was a bit too long). I added a splash of cream and a pinch of sugar and this is much smoother and really quite nice. I can taste the bergamot and the black tea. I like this, but can’t describe much more than that right now. Thanks Ricky for this generous sample. I think this may be added to my list of Lupicia teas to purchase (the list is getting rather long however!).

Hmmm, didn’t even realize I sent you that. I’m getting forgetful.

@Ricky – I think ginkgo is good for alleviating forgetfulness (I forget now) … you must have some tea with it as an ingredient? :)

Ricky

Ahhhh! Must be those vitamin supplements I take every day. Wait? What? Sorry, I forgot again.

Ricky-I’m glad you sent it, it is quite bergamot-y and enjoyable! Maybe I can find some Ginkgo tea to send you. What was it I was looking for?

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
