This is really nice. I’m not always as excited about green Earl Grey teas as I am about black Earl Grey … bergamot just seems to pair better with the black tea, in my opinion. However, it works really nicely in this blend.

It doesn’t brew up pink, though, it brews up a clear amber green color, but, that’s OK, I didn’t really expect it to be pink… It is a beautiful dry leaf though, with all the little rose buds in it.

As someone who adores Earl Grey, I found myself looking at the ingredients and wondering why anyone would put rhubarb in an Earl Grey, but it really seems to work here… it gives the cup an almost strawberry-ish taste, which may seem weird, but, it’s working for me. I taste enough of the bergamot to keep the Earl Grey lover in me happy, and the green tea is soft and buttery. A very enjoyable cup.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

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.
