1768 Tasting Notes
My history with Earl Greys has not always been harmonious. In fact, there was a period when I distinctly disliked his lordship and all his teas.
Now, with time, and a lot of tea tasting under my belt, I’m working on getting reacquainted with his lordship, and there are some versions of his teas that I quite like. I’ve been picking up varieties, and giving them a shot.
And, as its the first day of spring, I thought I would try this one today!
I get the bergamot in the first sip, and then the fruit crowds in at the end of my sip.
I was getting a little bit of soapiness to the flavor, which I’ll have to see if it continues, or is just a quirk of my mouth today.
I love the weekend. When I want a pot of tea and a few little tea biscuits in the afternoon, why then I can brew a pot and bring out the cookies!
So I decided to brew this up, as its been in my cupboard for a while, but untasted. And now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long, as its lovely. Its rich, but with a honeyed smoothness at the bottom, which makes it go down an absolute treat.
Friday. Thank goodness, its Friday.
I am quite stressed at work, and today is going to be massively busy. I’m worried that I won’t be done with the larger projects I’ve been given. Argh.
I wish I was feeling more confident in this new job! I’m dying to feel calm and detached when I come into the office, but right now I’m tense and stressed beyond belief.
Which means I’m not sleeping well. Which means that I’m not sleeping well. Which means tea.
This is my last bit of this, so its a sipdown.
I really like this blend. Its gorgeous in the cooler weather. Now that we’re pushing against spring, its time to drink it down.
