drank Earl Grey by Foxfire teas
4833 tasting notes

Foxfire strikes again by eating my tasting note, and isn’t it crazy that it happened to do that with a Foxfire tea?

Anyway… after my Ernest Hemingway tea FAIL … I decided I wanted to brew something I was fairly certain I’d enjoy. Since I figured Foxfire wouldn’t let me down with their Earl Grey, I thought I’d try that. While there have been a few Earl Grey fails in my past, I was confident that this Earl Grey would not be one to join those failures.

This is really AWESOMELY good. Definitely one of the upper echelon when it comes to Earl Grey. Maybe not #1 for me, maybe not even in the top 3, but, probably at least in the top 5.

The bergamot is remarkably smooth … it is almost so smooth that it is almost creamy, but without a vanilla or cream flavoring. This isn’t an earl grey cream. But, it is smooth like one. The bergamot is not at all sharp. No soapy notes, no perfume-y notes. Just smooth, rich, delicious flavor. This is like the smooth-talking Mr. Grey.

And the black tea base is rich and full-flavored. A really wonderful Earl Grey. Mr. Grey has restored my faith in tea again.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
