In yesterday’s mail, a card full of tea arrived from wonderful wombatgirl! Inside the card was written in large black letters

Tea.
Earl Grey.
Hot.

I of course got the HUGEST kick out of that, being an Earl Grey fan and a Picard fan :) The card is now on my desk here at work turned inside out so that the words show!!! I am so happy that I am getting to try A + D Damn Fine Earl Grey!!! :)

It is an absolutely delicious Earl. I love whatever bergamot they used, and the concentration is perfect! Not too much, not too little. I am absolutely crazy for the tea base! It balances so well with the bergamot – and adds a really great foundation. Anyone know what kind of tea was used?

I really didn’t want to like it as much as I do! Damn A + D and their Damn Fine Teas! Now I have to go and get series 3! SHEESH!

Mwahahaaaa!!!! I knew I’d read a review ‘round here right when I joined Steepster that used Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon your review. Not that I’m checking out all your reviews for any particular reason or anything. But am I excited to have discovered that it was you all along! :D

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
