drank Earl Grey Reserve by Tavalon Tea

Bumping this one up a bit. I’ve had a number of traditional Earl Greys now, and I wanted to try this one again. Definitely tasty; I think I like a Ceylon base, which this has. It’s not bitter, not much astringency, and it has a lovely smooth bergamot taste. At the very end there’s a hint of bright citrus that gives it a little lift. This is pleasant Earl Grey that I could drink regularly.

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: 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.
