Y-U-M! I am tasting a lemon drop Earl Grey Supreme. I know this is supposed to be grapefruit essence, but I taste a sweet, delightful lemony flavor plus all the flavors I know and love from EGS. I’m crazy for it! The extra bit of citrus definitely gives this tea pizazz, and the usual quality tea leaves from EGS are always a welcome treat. I love those silver tips!

I got the sachets for the beauteous tin, but if Harney starts offering this in the one pound bag size, that is the way I will purchase it. I have no complaints about the sachets, though.

I’m on my second steep, and it’s still flavorful and citrusy. I think I’ll make a third one and cool it for an afternoon iced tea.

They do! I already have mine, and had them make a lack and gold tin for it prelabeled and it was only $1.25 extra!

Huzzah! I think this blend has just become my favorite classic Earl! (I’m looking for a new Earl Grey Creme by the way, if anyone has suggestions.)

I agree. I didn’t think anything was going to beat EGS but this may have done it! We should ask Michael to blend an Earl Grey Cream! Come on, everybody! :)

Ooooo! I’m adding this to my shopping list! I just need to sip more of my cupboard down first.

Hmmm…special edition…I may need to buy sooner rather than later…

Rabs: from what Michael said I think this one is sticking around for a while. You might want to ask just to be sure.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
