After my very dark Monk’s Blend, I decided to try a much shorter steep for this one. I think I would go even shorter. This is a good cup of Earl, but I let it sit too long and it lost some of the bergamot taste as it cooled. When it was hot, it was amazing. My wife aisling of tea suggested I line up all my various Earls and taste test to find the Ultimate Earl. I think I do not have that kind of time, but it is a tasty idea.

So sad. I had such high hopes for this, despite it being in a tea bag. Hot, it was pretty good, nice and juicy, needed a touch more sugar, but overall pretty good.
Cold, this just tastes like achingly bitter water with a bit of peach aftertaste. Boo. Maybe a lower temperature? Who knows. I have four more bags from this sample pack, so if the next four are just as bad, I won’t be rebuying.
Actually drank this a couple nights ago. The Monk’s Blend was delicious and flavourful, but I oversteeped it and it got bitter quick. This tea turned almost black in like thirty seconds, it was bizarre and kind of awesome. I would recommend less than two minutes for a steep, maybe even a minute.
Hmmm. I’ve had jasmine greens before and enjoyed them, but the floral taste is overwhelmingly clashy in this tea. Makes me look forward to trying the rest of the Earls from Say Tea, but I don’t think I’ll be making this one again.

This is my first time trying this tea. My brain hurts a little seeing little puffy clouds of puffed rice and what appears to be hamster poo all mixed in with some very vegetal smelling green tea. There were no instructions about brewing so I used a tsp in 98 deg [probably too hot in hindsight] for 4mins. The cup smelled much nuttier than before and very vegetal, which was the predominate taste. I added agave nectar to sweeten before I had tasted it and I wish I hadn’t – next time I will drink it unsweetened. I almost feel like eating something with marmite on it with this tea – strange.
I will drink the rest of my sampler, but I’m not sure if I will buy more.
