drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons
267 tasting notes

It’s chilly in Houston- in the lower 30s, which is not common here! So, thinking “I’m in Texas.” I was underbundled this morning. By the time I got to school, I was pretty shivery. Although I generally like milk in my Earl Grey, I decided it would be worth it to try this one plain just to warm up, even though all I had was hot water cooler water.

Pretty good earl grey! I didn’t brew it under optimal conditions, to be sure, but I think I may still prefer Tea Gschwender’s Earl Grey 69. This one just didn’t taste quite as rich to me. It was delicious, but a bit muted. Perhaps I under-steeped it. Thanks to Kristin for the bag!

I’ve found that the pre-bagged Harney’s teabags can only hold up to a tiny tea cup, no more than 8 oz. That might be it.

Ahh yeah it was still pretty good, but I thought it could have been better if I made it at home.
