thank you so much again for the tea package, Dinosara! As I was steeping this one, I remembered I really didn’t like Harney’s teabag of Earl Grey that I had a while ago. There was something off about it. I’m glad it didn’t sway me from trying this one though, because it is GOOD. The bergamot here is perfect. It’s sweet but doesn’t have any of that funky flavor that some bergamot wannabes have. The base is great, especially for a Darjeeling. They usually aren’t my thing. But it’s a nice base for this flavor. I’m not sure if there is a caramel flavor here unless it is just evening out the lemon. The flavor really lingers. The second steep seems to have less lemon but more of a sweet flavor. I’m guessing the tea leaves themselves would have something like a caramel flavor? I think it’s my favorite non-cream bergamot tea! I’d buy more of this if I ever ordered from Harney (when the few teaspoons that Dinosara are finished 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!
