drank Earl Grey by Twinings
1249 tasting notes

Visited with friends today. They live a hundred miles away so we don’t see them often enough. While playing cards my friend asked if I wanted a chocolate espresso. I turned up my nose a little. He said how about some hot tea. It was this one. Of course I never turn down Earl Grey.

He had a kettle and heated the water then he got out a 16oz insulated tumbler and one bag! I asked, don’t you have a cup. He said he didn’t want me to run out. Having lost the cup argument I said – Fine. He put the bag in until the water turned lightly brown – maybe 10 seconds (and I am being generous). Took it out and started to throw it away. I yelled at him, put that back in! He looked at me like I was crazy. I tried to explain but it was obvious it did not compute. No wonder he isn’t a bigger tea fan. He is only drinking colored water. I laughed about it all the way home. Yeah, it tasted as diluted as it sounds.

The good point is your friend didn’t choice the worst tea bags, twinings Earl grey remains quite correct, you just need to train him now to the Art of tea :)

I agree. I was impressed he had this one. I was even more impressed he had an electric kettle. Next time I need to take tea – and cups – and convince him to let me do the steeping. This is still amusing me the next day.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
