drank Earl of Grey by The Tea Spot
1911 tasting notes

Mmmm, this is a tasty, tasty tea. I need to place my groupon order from the Tea Spot today, so I’m trying to decide if I want to stock up on this one or not. I am nearing the end of my current Earl Grey Cream supply, so there is a hole to be filled (though to be fair, there are a lot of holes to be filled of my “standard panel” teas). Right now my order is a little more than my groupon and I don’t want to spend too much more, and this tea is tough. I do really enjoy it and it is a very solid EGC. It doesn’t blow me away, but honestly I’m not sure if an EGC is the kind of tea that could blow me away. Although I have had plenty of EGC that I wasn’t excited about at all or even disliked, so maybe I should grab some of this because I do know I like it. Ok, I think I talked myself into ordering it… what’s an extra $8 on the order? :D And I’ll be stocked in EGC for a while with 3oz (I drink tea so slowly…)

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
