Today is a very, very Earl Grey day for me :) I decided that I simply must have more tea today, and remembered I had the Governor Gray that Jaime sent me here at work!

It’s delightful! Really light and – I don’t know – the word refreshing comes to mind. The tea and the bergamot flavoring combine for a very lemony taste. A perfect afternoon tea. This is another one that I think people with “bergamot problems” would like. :)

I also think it’s REALLY neat to try an American grown tea!! I have to put the Charleston Tea Plantation on the little radar in my head as a place to go for a really cool road trip. Look! http://www.charlestonteaplantation.com/About-Us.aspx

Thank you once again Jaime! Not only a good tea but an interesting tidbit of Americana!

It’s a great place to visit! I went there this past March. Brought a lunch, had a cup of Plantation Peach (iced and sweet, but still very good), and sat at the picnic tables just watching the workers get the plants ready for the coming first flush. It’s so peaceful there, I didn’t want to leave! Glad you liked this blend!

Their American Classic bagged blend isn’t bad … just a good Ceylon (can you call an American tea that)?

Jaime

Hmm…no clue. I do love American Classic. Wish they had it in loose-leaf.

Bigelow Tea

Jacqueline,
So glad to hear that you enjoyed your tea!

Gmathis, the tea is 100% grown at the Bigelow Tea owned Charleston Tea Plantation… just to clarify.

Thanks,

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
