32 Tasting Notes

found this tea bag floating around in my desk drawer. Started steeping it, forgot about it, ran back to my desk in a panic that I had over-steeped it. Luckily it tasted good. Added some brown sugar, and it was even better. If I came across this one in the store, I would pick it up. Good flavor.

Woke up this morning an hour before the alarm went off due to an unwelcome phone call. Decided to turn the first morning in our new house into something better. So while my husband assembles the dog kennel in the rain, I am making waffles and steeping a cup of this tea. The tea bags smell lovely, almost like an Earl Grey cologne. I will be honost, I bought it because I want to plant my herb garden in tea tins, and the empty ones go for as much on ebay as the full ones do on Amazon, so I figured, hey, why not get some tea out of the deal as well.
The liquor smells like a black tea, and I can just get a hint of the bergamot in the background.
Added some milk and sugar. Quite a tasty cuppa. Not the best Earl Grey I have had, but nowhere near the worst. I don’t mind that I have 29 more pyramid teabags of this to drink in order to use the tin as a planter!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Nice idea about using the tin as a planter! May I steal it? :)

Cute idea!

I stole the idea (saw it on pinterest), so of course. I thought it was a brilliant way to reuse the tin.

Thanks! :) I’ll earmarking my Fortnum & Mason Earl Grey Classic tin for this purpose since it has one of those “paint can” lids, and is really pretty looking:

Tea of the day at work. I really need to remember to bring some milk so I can have my tea the way I like. Still not a bad cuppa with my tea honey. Wish I had a way to temp control my water at work. Guess I know where some of my first pay check is going :)

received this in my march tea swap. Just brewed it up on my break. the liquor was a light yellow green, which was unexpected but welcome as I expected the liquor to be a red color due to the pomegranate. The fact that it was not red most likely indicated that it was not full of artificial colors. It had a subtle sweet smell and a mild taste. It tasted like an oolong, but the pomegranate was there, lingering in the background. I had it with a little honey, but think I will enjoy this one more once I get back off the mountain dew (it has a way of ruining your taste buds and making everything else taste less sweet. Darn high fructose corn syrup water). Overall, glad I got to try this one, and I will drink the other packets I got, but not one I would go out of my way to drink. I am pleased with the quality of Harney and Sons so far, but like Paris much more than this.

My Ratings:
90-100 My Favorites! Keep in cupboard always.
70-89 Pretty Good! Would not mind drinking, would not mind having
40-69 Various levels of drinkable, would not buy again, but if it was given to me, I’d accept it.
20-39 Might be able to choke it down, many shortcomings, trade it away!
1-19 Gross. Pour it down the sink. Flush it. Give it away. Just get rid of it.
