Another Earl Grey ! I love Earl Greys ! This one is so beautiful with lavender petals mixed in the blend and it smells soooooo citrus incredibly citrus, not very lavender.

Let’s say right now : it won’t be my staple Earl grey.
I prefered the lavender Earl grey by Gryphon Tea company.Having said that this is a lovely tea : the tea base is very nice, the bergamot is nicely blended – my “concern” is more on the lavender side, it was too much for me- it’s not overpowering but a little to much for my taste.
Anyway I cannot reproach this tea to have too much lavender…this is the purpose of Mademoiselle ! I was just expecting maybe more bergamot rather than lavender, thats’ all.
Probably just a question of taste, really because this is a great blend as most of the Theodor teas :)

Thank you for the sample, this tea looks so pretty and smells heavenly.

I am afraid now a bit – I had the Gryphon lavender earl grey but even that one was too much lavender for me. i still got the second teabag to try. We shall see!

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
