Thanks to Sil for this sample! Even though it’s not quite up her alley (bergamot, natch), I thought it might be up mine. Sachets were nice because I brought one to “tea time” today… The girls in my department have been getting together for tea time once a week, which has been awesome but a bit disheartening. I had hoped it would be a good way to spread the tea love and such, but everyone just avoids the teas I bring each week. Whether I bring fill-your-own tea bags or sachets or what, people always just go for the crappy bagged tea. Sigh.

Anyway, this tea. I will rate it once I brew it under better conditions (unfiltered water at tea time) but it was pretty tasty. Like an Earl Grey cream, but the added caramel is really nice. More EGC producers should consider it. There was a hint of bitterness to the base that was not pleasant, but it also wasn’t too bad. All together a nice tea, but not exceptional.

Hahaha, oh NO. I can so see that whole scene play out. I love this anecdote so much, you don’t even know. (Sacrilege!)

What is with some people being like that? I’ve had people in my department make fun of the tea I drink, like it’s too weird or something. Hey, let’s just take our awesome teas elsewhere then. :D

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.
89-86: 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
85-80: 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.
