drank Earl Grey by Tazo
796 tasting notes

Apparently I’m in an earl grey mood lately. I had a pot of decaf (without a brand name, otherwise I would have logged it!) at an Asian restaurant last night. I know… earl grey at an Asian restaurant? It was the only decaf they had.

So today I went to Starbucks because I needed a venti size drink but didn’t have a large mug in my office, and I was hoping for large quantities of green tea. Well, it’s exams, and the students (rightfully) have been buying up everything in our Starbucks, so they were out of it. I figured that of the in-stock options, this one would probably fair best, so here we go…

Now, off to 3 consecutive hours of presentations/meetings!

Ugh..meetings. Friend of mine memorized the states and capitals alphabetically so she’d have something to doodle during marathons. Hope the EG had enough kick to keep you alert!

I myself enjoy writing the alphabet backwards. Over. And over. And over…

Bio

a tea drinking librarian
& a reading, yoga practicing, mommy

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

(updated 12/2010)

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
