drank Earl Grey Cheesecake by 52teas
4231 tasting notes

I am increasing the rating on this tea today, because, I realize that it’s better now than it was when I first got it in the mail. I think this is because the tea needed time to “develop.” It tastes amazing now… much MUCH better than it did a few months ago!

The cheesecake and bergamot are in good balance. The black tea base is remarkable here, it is the right blend of teas – not quite as aggressive as other black teas from 52Teas … it is more refined and elegant and works good with these particular flavors.

Yum yum yum!

When I discovered 52 Teas and that they had a tea called Earl Grey Cheesecake, I nearly fainted. That sounds made especially for me. Some is on its way to me, and your review is making me think it can’t come fast enough!

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.
