drank Earl Grey White by Teavana
163 tasting notes
I am currently sipping the very last of this tea.

Today I need to do some serious cleaning.
We are having company this week and so I have to clean the Guest Bedroom/Dump-It-And-Run Room.
So, I went to the room, opened the door, peered in, shut the door and went to start the kettle.
I need tea to give me courage for this.
I grabbed something quite substantial, and it was this tea.
I love Earl Grey, it really is my favorite tea.
And nothing irritates me more than a “Shy Earl Grey”.
This tea is not shy…AT ALL.
If you are new to Earl Grey’s or not a huge fan of Bergamot than this probably is not the tea for you.
In fact, although I am a fan of Bergamot, I do believe Teavana could just tone it down a bit.
It does overwhelm the tea some.
But,overall, If a Earl Grey Fan, you are not gonna go wrong in trying this tea.
For me, I probably won’t be hurrying out and buying more of this particular brand just yet, mainly because there is a lot of Earl Grey’s to try out there in this big wide world.
Now, excuse me while I go and brave the dreaded spare room…

That sounds just like my “guest room,” which I will need to tackle next week. Hmm, what tea should I use to fortify me? I’ll have to think on that…

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
