The bergamot is fresh and juicy – it made my tastebuds do a little happy dance. Oddly enough, about half way through my mug it started reminded me of a chocolate orange. Not at all a bad thing but certainly unexpected. Added a little sugar and milk and this is a super EG breakfast tea. Mmm.

Yay! I haven’t tackled this one yet, but it’s in my cabinet. Can’t wait!

Ah awesome, I’m ordering this soon and require tastebud-dancing earl grey!

Charisma

Have you tried other Earl Greys? How does this one compare to others?

oOTeaOo, I haven’t tried a ton of straight EGs – mostly variations… Adagio’s EG Bravo, SpecialTea’s EG Fine (I think it is) and some variations and some Mariage Freres’ variations, and a sip of Rishi’s straight EG. The little bit of Rishi’s is probably the freshest and best tasting one for me and this one rates just below Rishi’s for me. ST’s EG de la Creme & MF’s Ruschka black are also favorites. And that might have been much more in depth than what you were looking for. Oops!

Charisma

No, its perfect! Thanks so much!! :) I love EGs and am considering buying this one.

Love the EG shout-outs, Auggy! I’m still not a fan, but… hrm. Samovar’s EG is really, really good!

I haven’t had Samovar’s EG straight but it is lovely in Scarlet Sable (at least, I’m pretty sure that’s what in there). I don’t typically have much love for EGs (preferring the softer Lady EG-like ones) but with this one and Rishi’s I’m kind of thinking it is mostly because of the EGs I’ve met because I do like this one a lot. It strikes me as very relalistic/natural/juicy tasting instead of fake/perfume-y/nasty. There are some icky EGs out there!!!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
