More rose! So currently I have a couple of rose Earl Greys, but actually none that really are really exactly what I want. Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black is of course delicious, but the Bergamot is very light on that one so it doesn’t come across as an Earl. I have the new Scarlet & Grey from my local tea shop, but it’s not powerful enough with either flavor. An then there’s this one. This one never quite worked out the way I’d hoped, and it continues to do so. I just want more bergamot and more rose from it. Still, it’s a decently tasty tea and I enjoy the base way more than I did when I first got it.

Really, the solution to my rose Earl Grey deficit is to purchase some Rosy Earl Grey from Teas etc, which is my favorite of the type. Perhaps one day!

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.
