drank Earl of Grey by The Tea Spot
1848 tasting notes

I know, more Earl Grey Cream, right? I got my package from the Tea Spot in the mail last night, and I had to try this one this morning to test out my taste buds, which seemed off yesterday. Creamy-flavored teas were just bland! Well it seems like my creamy taste for tea is pretty much back. This tea is super citrusy, and sweet and creamy. It seems more sweet than normal today; perhaps it’s because this is a nice fresh batch. Definitely one of my new favorites, and I’m glad I bough a big pouch of it. And I’m glad it seems like I can try new teas today and not miss out on their flavors because of weird taste buds.

Profile

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: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
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: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
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.
