Recent Tasting Notes


This morning, I continued on my clearing out of the tea cupboard. My mom brought this Earl Grey back from Charlotte, NC, where she was visiting my uncle, for me. I remember it being a strong black with no Earl Grey flavors when I first had it. I brewed it for a shorter time this morning and it was much the same. The second brewing produced a cup of good strength.

Second brewing: 6 min 30 sec.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

At $8 per ounce, this is not the most affordable tea, and plenty of similar and nearly as good pearl green varieties can be purchased at your local (advisably Chinese I suppose!) tea shop. This stuff, however, is pretty up there in terms of accessible gourmet. Fresh, subtle, and virtually impossible to brew a bad cup of.
