Thanks for letting me try this one too, TeaEqualsBliss! I almost had written all Earl Grey off, as the only Earl Grey I had ever tried was probably the worst tea bag ever. Terrible stuff. Then I tried some Creme Earl Grey and it became my second favorite tea ever. (Worst and second favorite? Interesting.) I think I really love the creamy component in tea. I was still worried as I tried this one, just because I didn’t think I would like plain bergamot, because of my experience with “bergamot”. But this is GOOD. This is actually a quality bergamot and not floor cleaner like that other tea! And the bergamot might be responsible for a bit of the flavor I thought was just the cream in the other. There really AREN’T many teas I don’t like!

I drank an Earl Grey a while back when I first got into tea that was extremely bitter and gross no matter how you made it. Silly me thought it was the safflowers in it, and I was afraid to try any tea with safflower until I finally realized it was the bergamot.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
