So…. I’m far from a huge EG fan, however I do find that EGs mixed with something else to temper them are quite to my liking. So, I grabbed some of this in the hopes that it would an orange-y chocolate kinda tea.

Nope. This is more floral than anything, with some chocolate richness in the background. I’ll give it another few tries when my sinuses have cleared.

I like bergamot, but was unimpressed with this one. Doesn’t matter cause I liked all my other Lupicia teas :-)

I’m usually not a fan of anything Earl Grey or bergamot related!

Trying to think of the EGs I’ve enjoyed. Teajo has a lovely one, and the Marshmallow EG from Herbal Infusions was really lovely. The more floral ones though? I’ll pass. I had high hopes for this! I’ll just have to share it with my EG loving friends — yes, I’m looking at you, CelebriTEA.

CelebriTEA certainly does love her EG’s. I’m slowly coming around to them, only had two so far I think. I’m still in awe of the fact that I can do citrus teas and enjoy them… I still won’t put a lemon slice in my iced tea, but a tea that’s blended w/citrus I’m finding a liking for sometimes, esp orange flavors.

I think bergamot is a love or hate it thing. I thought I’d hate it, but finding I might enjoy it if it’s not overdone. Count me out of most florals though, unless they are light and well done.

I’ve always been curious about this one but also skeptical. The only other Chocolate Earl Grey I’ve had was not really pleasant.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
