drank Earl Grey Melange by Custom
1798 tasting notes

I am posting this under someone else’s melange, but they are similar. You may ask yourself, “Why is ashmanra drinking so much tea today?”

I am mortified at myself for placing THREE SEPARATE TEA ORDERS this weekend. I have to either make room or get one of the kids to move out, so I am making room. I am making a box for a friend who is new to loose leaf tea and I will be drinking a LOT this week. Also, I will be buying an extra storage box. Sigh.

This is the last bit of H&S Earl Grey and their Sally’s Secret with a couple of teaspoons of Organic Qu Hao from A Southern Season added. I made a big pitcher and sweetened it because it will mainly be used as iced tea, probably exclusively by me because I am the only Earl Grey Drinker in the house.

I decided to taste a cup hot before chilling it just to see if the strength was good. I think it is. It is very good hot and the bergamot is more pronounced than I thought it would be with the amount of plain black tea I added. I think I will enjoy this iced. Next time, though, there will be more plain black and less Earl, in hopes of getting others to drink it.

Ordering tea to nudge the adult child out of the house … hmmm … I’ll take that one under advisement ;)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
