drank Earl of Grey by The Tea Spot
2486 tasting notes

My gig schedule has been crazy for weeks, but I’m finally having a Saturday off with Tony. We had a nice breakfast together, started a crockpot of chili, & have basically lazed around in our PJs all day, watching back episodes of NCIS & a few other shows we like. So far today I’ve drank Shagadelic English Breakfast & Bolder Breakfast. Now Tony is is the bubble bath (real men DO take bubble baths), and I’m watching Snow White & the Huntsman, and sipping this Earl Gray. And I LIKE it! YEAH! It’s a nice variation from the usual: bright & lemony, sweet with a little licorice & vanilla. The black tea base is a little weak, in my opinion, but otherwise this is a tasty cup! I sweetened it with some stevia, & I’m enjoying every sip. :D

As it cools, it’s sort of reminding me of fruit loops…

This tea reminded me of lemon pudding. Then, I saw that I was allergic to one ingredient so had to stop but otherwise it tasted really good.

Terri HarpLady

Yeah it has licorice, which is yummy for me, allergy for you. You have my sympathy!

I wouldn’t have thought of licorice and vanilla in Earl Grey but it sure sounds good.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
