So, another Earl Grey try. (I will not cease untill I found a good one)

This cup is very (VERY) dark brown/orange.
It’s so bitter! I can taste the bergamot, but it’s not tasty.

I kind of understand the attraction to Earl Grey – Tea and bergamot?
It should be tasty! Have to keep trying.

Have you tried their Queen’s Blend? It’s like EG+ with a little green in it. I’m not really an EG fan myself, I don’t care much for the bergamot flavour, but I find that one drinkable.
On the other hand, if you didn’t care much for the regular EG, maybe I should warn you away from QB instead…

Oh man, totally know how you feel on the hunt for a good earl grey. I literally had to try every single brand I could get my hands on before finding something amazing! I can’t recommend any NZ brands to you, but have you tried any of the Harney & Sons earl greys? They allllllmost came close for me (I prefer a more plain earl grey with a strong bergamot kick instead of the typical floral ones).

I am considering the QB.
Going to buy some Perchs soon anyway. But I havn’t tried the Harney and Sons?
I am looking for a sweet fruity Earl Grey, I think. I’m not sure about the floral Earl Grey, but then again, sometimes I get suprised by the strangest tasting notes. (Like the one yesterday that tasted like mold, but actually tasted good)

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
