Whenever I have to get up really early in the morning, I often feel wide awake when I first get up, but then a cLille of hours later I’ll crash and feel exhausted. Definitely happening this morning. I’m hoping my travel mug full of this tea will wake me up and get me ready for standing at the endless line at the Chinese consulate to pick up my visa.

Apparently I didn’t do a great job cleaning out this travel mug after the last time I used it with Todd&Holland Double Bergamot Earl Grey. Fortunately I like the flavors together and this reminds me that I wanted to try blending my own chocolate Earl (I’d use this tea [which would actually make it chocolate almond Earl] or the Tea Spot’s Organic Chocolate “O” for the chocolate part) since I wasn’t impressed with Upton’s. The bergamot left over in the travel mug didn’t last long, though, and for the most part this was just the tasty tea I rely on.

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.
