drank Earl Grey by Tea Forte
34 tasting notes

I’ve had this tea quite a few times and it is enjoyable, as Earl Greys go. It is astringent, has a nice black bitterness to it, but for Earl Grey it’s kind of bland. I really don’t get the bold peppery flavors that I get with some other brands. All-in-all this is a good tea, but if I have a choice I will be drinking Bigelow or Twinings over this if we are talking bagged.

Bio

I have a huge affection for malty, Chinese reds with rich, sweet flavors that soothe the throat and calm my nerves.

Yezi Tea is my favorite online vendor. Joy’s Teaspoon, Teavivre, and JusTea are also all-around-excellent.

I occasionally enjoy hot dragon well, but do not often drink green teas. I do enjoy mint, rose, lychee and chamomile, however. Rooibos is quite off-putting to my taste buds, and I am very wary of spray flavors, but not above trying them.

Other than tea I enjoy dabbling in watercolor, my cats and dogs, the occasional rescue animal, fantasy mmos and turn-based rpgs, and arm-chair linguistics.
