drank Earl of Grey by The Tea Spot
1992 tasting notes

Happy Year of the Dragon! Maybe I’ll celebrate with some Jasmine Dragon Pearls later today. But right now I need a tea to really perk me up because I am feeling mega blah this morning. Nasty, rainy weather, nonstop sneezing… I want to go back to bed. But I’m at work, so that’s not happening. :P

I can really smell all the citrus fruits in the dry leaf today… orange and grapefruit and lemon, along with the bergamot and creamy vanilla. I’m assessing this one to order with my groupon for this company to fill the current Earl Grey Cream hole in my cupboard. Ok, it’s not quite hole yet because I still have a small amount of my Earl Grey Cream from ESP Emporium, which I enjoy, but I might like this one better.

This is a really nice Earl Grey Cream. Citrusy and creamy, no bitterness or astringency. This would probably be a good one to keep around.

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.
