drank Earl Grey by Lupicia
796 tasting notes

A weekend for relaxing – finally! I can’t really remember the last time I had one of those!

Today I chose a bagged Earl Grey for breakfast – I am truly taking lazy to the extreme! But it is a Lupicia bagged tea, and those tend to have leaves of really good quality. This is no exception.

I prepped it this morning with almond milk and sugar, but I don’t think that the almond milk favors the bergamot in the tea. It is definitely still drinkable, though. I’ll just remember for next time to use regular milk or none at all.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
