Third time’s the charm. I used less leaf and did a shorter steep time and what do you know, Earl Grey really can be drinkable! No offense meant to people who love Earl Grey tea, I’ve just never managed to find a good cup of it before (plus the amount of bergamot in the Twinnings bags makes me sneeze). The bergamot here, however, was pleasant, not overwhelming.

I think I am officially impressed. I’m not an Earl Grey convert by any stretch of the imagination but this variety at least I can manage.

Bio

I prefer loose-leaf teas but I do like to keep some tea bags around for travel. I prefer black teas (especially Yunnans), dark oolongs, and pu’erh. My #1 favorite is Jasmine Golden Yunnan from thepuriTea.com.

Most used pots:

12oz blue tetsubin (1.75-2.0 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get a spoon-full of sugar)

10oz green tetsubin (1.55-1.65 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get less than a spoon-full of sugar)

5oz gaiwan (4.0-4.15 grams of leaf. no sugar)

4oz gaiwan (2.5-3 grams of leaf. no sugar)
