drank Creamed Earl Grey by Teaopia
145 tasting notes

My first tea from Teaopia. When I went in the store they were talking about how much they hate Davids Tea, but a lot of their products/advertising etc looks very similar…

Anyway, about the tea. If I were to do a blind test on this I’d probably say it’s just a straight up earl, but a very nice one. It’s not like the Davids version which is much creamier. If I really try I can kind of taste the creaminess cutting the bergamot a little. Mehh, this one is okay. It’s a good tea but not what I was expecting.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Sounds kind of immature for teaopia staff to be talking like that. Its all tea. Sure, everyone has a certain preference or comfort zone but, are they really that pretentious about their tea drinking? If I were you I would have been kind of annoyed and left.

Yeah I know, they were kinda unfriendly too. :/ But I wanted to try the tea lol. I thought maybe even though those particular staff members were unimpressive the company might still be alright.

Wow, how unprofessional to trash the competition where customers can hear. That’s the type of thing that has made me no longer step foot into Teaopia. David’s just beats them in every way for me.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
