I had to have another cup of this one because it won WheezyBee’s Battle of the Earl Greys and I just happened to suggest it since I didn’t see it on her list of Earl Greys. I had no idea it would win! I just love this one — a nice bold bergamot to go with a bold assam. For the true Earl Grey fan – or to make you an Earl Grey fan!

I didn’t realize it had, but that’s cool because I decided once and for all this week that it has won informally in my heart, too (after an embarassing number of Earls…60 or something crazy like that). To celebrate I had a cup this afternoon.

oh nice! I don’t think I’ve tried 60 EGs, so it’s interesting this one was your favorite too!

There were a lot of duds! Some good ones too though, hee. But yeah this was my favorite standard, no-bells-and-whistles with extra flavor sort of EG.

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!
