The Final Sipdown: Day 18
Decupboarding Total: 36

My third and final tasting of this one, once again with additives. When I had it plain I was picking up on something almost spicy/peppery in it and I can still taste that here, even over the milk and sugar. It gives an interesting tingle to my tongue. The bergamot doesn’t seem overly strong but it is there – perhaps it doesn’t seem overly strong because there are no perfume-y or soapy notes to it which is actually a good thing.

I’m a bit torn as far as where this goes in the overall Earl Grey showdown (really wish I had tried Arbor Tea’s version with additives just to make sure it doesn’t turn into radioactive sludge when milk and sugar is added, though I seriously doubt it does) but ultimately I think this slides into second place – in front of Upton’s EG Supreme but behind Arbor Tea’s Earl Grey.

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.
