56 Tasting Notes
I agree with the other reviews noting the particularly artificial “strawberry” scent. Overall a good tea with nice flavoring — but I think darker tea leaves would’ve provided more contrast and balancing to the light citrus and rose.
This is one of my new favorite teas. This tea isn’t evocative of pine trees or peppermint of Christmas, no. It’s more like wearing your favorite fuzzy sweater with a butter cookie in hand. Delicious and light with a lingering sweetness.
Hands down the most delicious Earl Grey “Creme” to have set foot on this earth.
Lifting the leaves out of its packaging was probably the highlight of this cup. Dainty flowers laced with a hint of bergamot and greener leaves. However, in drinking this tea you’re left with a neither here-nor-there feeling. Not enough “Earl Greyness” to be a good Earl Grey, and not enough floral aroma after brewing. Not a bad cup, mind you, but it left me in want of something stronger or more well balanced.
Everything an Early Grey should be — creamy with a hint of bergamot and a smooth finish. Delicious!
I’m partial to oolongs of Chinese origin, especially Taiwanese, but I’ll be damned if I don’t say that this is one of the best oolongs I’ve ever had. Great brew with a light gold color and a baby-bear (juuuust right) amount of peachy flavor.
