Generic and dupeable. As much as it breaks my heart to say it, that is my impression of this one. It smells like an orange tinted earl, and that’s basically what it tastes like, except I didn’t get as much tangerine as I’d’ve liked. If you’re a fan of Earls, especially green leaf ones, then give this one a shot. It is a good tea, and you may find that you fall hard for it. But if you’re only a mediocre earl fan like myself, you may want to give this one a pass.

THat’s not encouraging. I don’t really like Earl Grey at all, and I don’t like green tea. This is one I picked up 10 g of because I feel for the hype and always want a good orange tea. I’ll have to brew mine up this weekend and see!

I did not find that this tea had that typical Earl Grey flavour from the bergamont oils and I was disappointed as The Countess of Seville from DavidsTea being a personal favourite.

I definitely prefer the Countess. There’s no comparison between the two in my mind!

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
