drank Persian Earl Grey by Lipton
5 tasting notes

I don’t… hate this tea, in fact I drink it when I go and visit my mum, so it has a fairly happy association for me. Still, it’s always given me the impression of tasting kind of… fuzzy. If it weren’t for the weird, fuzzy taste, it’d be any other cup of Lipton EG, but with it, it’s a bit like rubbing your lips against peach fuzz. I realise this is a strange association to have with a tea, but it’s true!

Good, but only in very small doses. This is not an every day tea, in my opinion. This is the tea you keep in the back of your cupboard and drink when you’ve run out of nearly everything else.

Bio

I study at uni, and I drink a shitton of tea. I do more of the latter than the former.

I am currently having an intense, passionate love affair with lapsang souchong. I live with two really crappy landlords right now, but I am never going to hold any lingering resentment against my landlady because she introduced me to lapsang.

That being said, Earl Grey will always be my first love. I also unexpectedly fell for Darjeeling, which was quite the surprise!

The only tea I’ve ever truly disliked is English Breakfast. I know it’s intended to be consumed with milk and sugar, but I always drink tea straight (or with one sugar) and I will forever be scarred by memories of a 5-day trip to Paris where bagged EB was the only tea I could get my hands on. (Paris was great though, bad tea aside!)
