drank Rosy Earl Grey by Teas Etc
1112 tasting notes

This tea is so incredibly delightful! I thank the tea gods every time I drink it that Rabs sent me some to try. My life (and frou frou) is so enriched because of it!!!

You know how some days certain teas taste better than other days? Well, today is a banner Rosy Earl Grey day. It tastes so sweet and jasminey and rosy yet the good tea base is keeping it grounded and not cloying or perfumey. I am literally saying (in my mind!) SHEESH this is SO GOOD after each and every sip!

I am glad I learned to make hearts on the internet, because ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

EDIT: I was about to make a third steep, but I had to run to a meeting, so I added lukewarm water to my brew mug. When I returned an hour and a half later, I had a delicious “iced tea” to drink with my lunch! It’s not cold, but it is cool from our freezing office air conditioning. No bitterness and delicious flavor. Typing this in so I can remember it for the future!

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
