drank Blossom Earl Grey by Twinings
1848 tasting notes

My daughter’s boyfriend sent a number of teas to me from Ireland, some of which are available here in the US, and some I am not so sure about! I have not seen this in stores here, but it may be available in larger cities.

The steeped tea smells like Twinings Earl Grey tea with a bit of jasmine added. It is actually orange blossom, but I am not familiar with that scent so I just compare this to what I know! The first sip, though, remedies any confusion about what is in this tea! Mixed with the bergamot, which is prominent but not overbearing, there is a delicious juicy orange taste. Nice blend, Twinings!

Boiling water, steeped four minutes, no additions.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five 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 and oolongs.

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

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