drank Earl Grey Exotique by Chado
1915 tasting notes

I got this tea a while ago and didn’t even expect that much of it, but it turned out to be really awesome (which cannot necessarily be said of the rest of this company’s tea).

I love the rose and passionfruit in this, and all the flavors just come together well. It’s slightly sweet and very smooth, and the base tea is substantial enough to give it some heft. I still find this very tasty and it’s a nice variant of Earl Grey to have around.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

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.
