Balanced, I can clearly smell and taste the tea base pretty well here, unlike many earl greys. The bergamot isn’t overpowering like it can be in some teas. I made it kind of weak the first time, used more leaf and steeped it longer this time, and it was way better. It didn’t seem to get as bitter as other earl greys can on a longer steep. With sugar and milk it makes one of the better home made lattes I have attempted.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
