drank Earl Grey by Lipton
1611 tasting notes

I needed something to warm me up at lunch time, so I got a cup of this at the restaurant (it was a choice between this and ‘orange peacock’ I swear to god that’s what the waitress called it!). I didn’t steep it very long and it came out quite pleasently light with an almost floral, citrusy taste.

Not bad at all for a generic earl grey. I suspect the key thing was the fact that I didn’t steep it very long.

This makes me laugh. And now I really want to see if there is a tea named “orange peacock” anywhere – or at least one that would have a orange peacock on the label. Because that would probably entertain me for a solid day at least.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
