902 tasting notes

I am always on the search for that perfect blend. The perfect breakfast blend (it’s LiberTEAS, in case you’re still looking), the perfect chamomile (an ongoing search), and the perfect Earl Grey-type blend.

teabird very kindly sent this to me. I’ve no Trader Joe’s around here, and loved the thought of orange with the bergamot.

The flavors do translate as “lemon” once they hit your tongue. It’s smooth, and has just the right amount of scent to let you know that, yes, it’s a member of the Earl Grey family, even though it’s the result of a rendevous with some scandalous lemony fiend, and the elders of the family put it in little bags and sent it off on its way.

If you can’t tell, I’m very impressed with it, and think that this would be a fantastic tea to keep on hand at the office, or to have tucked into my purse while on the road. I’ll have to find my nearest Trader Joe’s and plan a trek to pick some up…yes, I think it’s that good.

Ooh, sounds like a good Earl. I’ll have to look for this at the trader Joe’s near me. I’d love to have a scandalous fiend of a lemon Earl in my cupboard!

These are my favorite discoveries here on Steepster; hidden gems sitting right out on the grocery shelf. I was surprised by the high marks a tea at Target has been getting and now TJ’s.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
