Holy cow does this smell strong! Wow. This was a purchase for the wife, who was more than eager to try it out. I make her London Fogs all the time now (equal parts Earl Grey matcha and French Vanilla matcha whisked up with a bit of soy milk) and it’s her favorite way to get going in the morning. When I asked her if she wanted me to order more, the answer was “yes yes yes, please, yes!” and when asked what strength she wanted it, she just grinned. “I’ve always been kinda curious about ’There’s Matcha in There?‘” So super-strong Earl Grey was ordered. I’m a little bit afraid of it, the scent is so, so strong, but I’m not really a fan of Earl Grey. She likes it though. I opened the package and she smelled it from across the room. “Mmmmm, what’s that?” I’m tellin’ ya, she loves her Earl. I’m gonna make her try it straight and let me know what she thinks of it.

She is in love. The taste is indeed strong with this one (found here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/earl-grey-matcha.html). This may have earned a permanent place in our cupboard. For me, the lemon is overwhelming, but for the diehard Earl fan, it’s juuuuust right.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
