A nice classic Earl Grey. I find that I like the bergamont that Harney uses much more than others I’ve come across thus far. Medium strength, preferring this blend without milk. Solid black base, slightly malty.

Totally hate tea ninjas. I have certain teas that I hide from family members/guests, not to be rude but because I don’t want it all to go missing while I’m not looking :P

They went through a whole tin without asking? How rude!

Miss Starfish

My issue was the lengths they went to, to hide everything. I would have been happy to open it and share if they had asked. Oh well.

I feel like I missed something here….. O.o

Miss Starfish

Yeah, I removed the negativity from my review. I had some house guests who opened my tin of this without asking, and went through all but one bag, while purposefully hiding that they were doing so. I don’t understand why they felt the need to be sneaky, but figured people who were looking up tasting notes for Earl Grey Imperial didn’t need to hear me rant ;)

Kittenna

Ahh. I am not nearly as thoughtful as you! That would drive me crazy, btw! I’m lucky that nobody steals my tea here (granted, it is in my room, which is technically off-limits to my roomies).

I generally take my tea straight, although occasionally blacks may end up with a splash of milk if I’m after a certain comfort factor. I’m enjoying expanding my tea palate, and am so far favoring whites and greens the most, although oolongs and blacks aren’t that far behind. Still deciding on rooibos, and have yet to try honeybush.

Likes: Coconut (addict), Peach, Honeydew, Various Melons, Lychee, Nectarine, [Blood and normal] Orange, Tangerine, Berries in general, but specifically Strawberry and Raspberry, Chocolate, Pumpkin, Caramel, Pecan…

Dislikes: Licorice, Coffee, Grapefruit…
