drank Tea Earl Grey Hot by ThinkGeek
252 tasting notes

I participated in a Star Trek swap and this was one of the items I received. I believe it is made by Adagio. I haven’t had the best luck with Adagio Earl Greys in the past, and this one was no different. The bergamot is way too strong and I don’t have much of a tea taste. I added in some cream to make it more drinkable. This isn’t the best tea, but I can enjoy it with milk and sugar. The tin is the part I really want anyway!

At least the trek reference part was awesome!

Exactly! Feeling like Picard every time I drink this is definitely a bonus too!

Stephanie

<3 Picard :)

Oh Patrick Stewart. I love that man.

lol, love the name! i am also insanely picky about bergamot, and tend to dislike it. my defacto earl is ‘the earl’s garden’ from david’s teas. low in bergamot, higher in fruit but still a very nice black.

Emilie

I might have to try that! I like the flavor of bergamot, but I find it overwhelming in a lot of teas.

JustJames

well, i have a whole tin that i can draw from in a swap if you’d like (it’s one of my faves so i keep it in stock).

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
