Out with the old – in with the new. Since clearing out my cupboard I thought I should reward myself with opening a new tea.

I really love this one – its so smooth, even for an EG! And that’s without sweetener! Rarely can I drink any kind of EG without sweetener. The bergamot doesn’t overwhelm. The cheesecake is there in all of it’s tangy, creamy glory! And the tea base is a nice sturdy one. Dare I say the perfect trifecta!

Having said that, I look forward to playing around with this. I’m curious if my older tea habits of dirtying up a perfectly good tea will sully this stellar offering. But that will have to wait another day…

Sounds yummy..I typically need sweetener in my earl grey as well, it seems to help cut some of the sharp aspects of the bergamot.

Bio

I’m a native Midwesterner (Iowa, specifically) who was happily uprooted to California twice. SoCal is what I consider home, even though I currently don’t live there. I hope to return home again!

Tea has really come to fill the void of my current displacement. My husband & I (with our two tiny weenies) moved to Indiana hardly knowing a soul. It’s been a tougher transition for me than I’d thought it would be. I have amassed a cupboard of teas to keep me company until I feel more familiar in my newer surroundings.

I will refrain from giving numerical values to teas because I am a faddist. My likes and dislikes are constantly changing. Flavored blacks are what I gravitate to the most. Having said that, I do enjoy a wide variety of teas – you name it, I’ll try it. I may not like it today, but I might revisit it later and love it.

Flavor note: I prefer my teas to be bold in flavor. I am starting to come around to drinking tea without additives. But I do like to dirty my tea with rock sugar/simple syrup and sometimes with half-n-half/milk. Unflavored greens are unsweetened, but flavored greens I usually add rock sugar. Lately I have been favoring flavored guayusa and matés.
