782 tasting notes

This is a tasting note not exactly for this tea. It is for the Keurig version of this tea.

I was outside all day yesterday and of course got a sunburn. I was also quite dehydrated despite drinking lemonade all day. I was at my parents, so before the long drive home I decided to make an iced tea. This was the easiest thing my parents had. So I brewed it through the Keurig into my travel mug filled with ice. It was good enough. Tasted like a slightly astringent earl grey, the black tea taste was heavy. The bergamot was strong, but it was not sweet bergamot. There was a slight coffee taste due to contamination from the Keurig. But it got me home. I think if I was going to drink this again, I would drink it hot.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
