drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons
1851 tasting notes

I actually drank this one earlier this afternoon, but never got around to logging it at the time. I brewed this one with 1.5 teaspoons for a 12 oz cup, which is what Harney puts in their sachets, and it seems to have taken care of the faint bitterness I was getting even steeping for only 3 minutes. I’m bumping up the rating on this one because I enjoy it much more now! I’m not sure it’s my favorite straight Earl Grey, but I feel like I’ve been drinking so many different ones I can’t keep them straight! I need to have a side-by-side taste test.

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.
