drank Earl Grey by Foxfire teas

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 also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
