Yesterday’s Steepster Select reminded me about this wonderful Earl I have in my collection!! Sometimes I forget about him because I transferred him to a plainer tin. I loved the A+D tin so much that I had to use it before I was done the tea for all of my sewing pins in my studio!!! (A Thomas tin holds my paperclips at work. Good tea + good design = very, very, very happy JacquelineM!)

I am enjoying him immensely today! The bergamot is very citrusy and present, but not perfumey or overwhelming. The tea base is delicious – this is one Earl who makes an absolutely perfect resteep! Actually, the word perfect keeps coming to mind as I sip and sip. This is one heck of an Earl!!

Free shipping or no, as soon as I finish buying my holiday presents and come up for air, I have to get the latest two A+D series. I love their tea!

Glad to hear this Earl is so perfect! I caved on this and series 5 yesterday. Hoping there will still be some series 6 left when I have money after the holidays again.

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
