Made this one as a cold brew. Brewed for only about 4 hours because I forgot to put it in the fridge last night, and put it in this morning, then I couldn’t wait to try it.

This is BY FAR the most DELICIOUS cold brew earl grey I have tried. It is bold but smooth. The bergamot is strong but not overpowering, it has a natural sweetness. I am getting a sweet taste that I can’t quite place. I want to say it is like when you caramelize shredded coconut, like for a dessert, that sweet sticky stuff that sits on top of the coconut shavings, that is what I am tasting but without the coconut taste. There is definitely a citrous taste to it, like a spicey pink grapefruit, or the rind of a navel orange. It is all very subtle and blends well together.

This was the last of my free sample that came from Teajo but I think this one is going on the shopping list.

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.
