I had Earl Grey again this morning. This EG definitely is better by itself rather than as a London Fog. It’s likely it’s also better without any milk as well. This EG is more bergamot and less tea and that’s okay. It’s yummy but it’s prolly not my ideal EG. I think I’d prefer an EG that had more balance between the two, or one with a tasty strong black tea where the bergamot was noticeable. While I definitely like this tea, I think it may end up being my least favorite of all the A&D teas release thus far. I’m also noting that the second steep today was nearly as strong and flavorful as the first.

2nd steep: 7 min 30 sec.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
