Travelling Tea Box C

I really need to try more and more teas by this Teamaker. I’ve had quite a few awful earl greys lately, but this one was lovely! The ceylong base was full-bodied, fruity, and smooth. The bergamot wasn’t oily or bitter. A really lovely earl grey!

" A really lovely earl grey!" Agreed!
One note: Lord Bergamot is different in that it’s a blend of two Ceylon teas as well as an Assam tea. http://steepster.com/looseTman/posts/187306

I thought I detected some Assam as it cooled down!

The addition of Assam to Lord Bergamot is makes this tea different from the traditional Earl Grey teas that have a 100% Ceylon base.
Question: When is an Earl Grey, not an Earl Grey?
Answer: When it’s a Lord Bergamot!

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
