Picked up a packet of Good Earth Earl Grey from a store’s tea basket, and I don’t think I’ll try this one again. While I love Earl Grey, this particular blend is quite citrusy and is overtaken by the bergamot. I always drink my Earl with milk, which usually smoothes out overzealous peppery tastes. This still felt astringent and strong, even for a normal steep. I would suggest a light steep to determine taste, with an additional steep if you like some face-puckering Earl Grey taste. Then again, Good Earth is noted for having very bold flavours, no?
ummm, i’m kinda embarrassed to say, but i love this. yup, tea snob that i am, i still love this. two bags, steep 5 minutes, add 1/2 & 1/2 (the good stuff), a bit of agave. delicious. i added a touch of whiskey to it last night. a movie, this tea, a splash of sass. nice. don’t know if i’d pay full price for it though. it was on clearance. i am a sucker for the word cocoa.
So, yesterday I got tea packages from Meghann and seykayay.
Today I picked up my order from David’s Tea at the post office, then got home to find my order from Sanctuary T in my mailbox.
So far, it’s been a really good mail week!
You might be asking why I’m having this and not one of my brand new teas. Well, the answer is two-fold: after this pot, I’ve got two bags left until I can decupboard it. And, well…I’ve no idea which of my new teas to start with. Really, absolutely no clue. All I know is that my real-life cupboard is needing rearranging/expanding. Especially since I know of 2 more tea orders that should be working their way towards me…
Needing something sweet right now, and this is it. The caramel, vanilla, and spices blend perfectly with the rooibos. Scent still reminds me of a sugar cookie baked with wildflowers…hmm, maybe I should bake tonight.
Bumping up the rating on this a bit. It tastes better everytime I have it.
The bag smells like a cross between wildflowers and sugar cookies. Sounds strange, but it works quite well. When brewed, smell is more like sweet caramel. It’s a very light dessert tea, naturally sweet. The vanilla and caramel are about equal in their intensity. This is my first tea from Good Earth; I’ll definitely be trying more.
Brewed for 10 minutes.
