48 Tasting Notes
I love a good lavender earl grey. I grabbed this one out of my earl grey stash today and although I love lavender this might have over done it a bit for me. It’s very heavy on the lavender. So much that it has a bit of a lavender bathroom smell to it. I can taste the earl grey in the after taste but otherwise it’s overtaken.
I’ve had this in a cupboard (ok it’s really a giant overfilled drawer) for a while and I should’ve made it sooner! I thought it would have too much orange/citrus flavors but it doesn’t. I used the pitcher pack to make a nice big pitcher of tea and it’s really tasty. It has hints of pineapple and orange and just the right amount of tea bitterness.
I’m home sick today which means I get to drink all the tea! Friday sipdown anyone?
I received this as a sample in my tea box. I decided to cancel my subscription because I have too many teas to drink and TTBs headed my way! I really enjoyed this tea. It has a subtle amount of bergamot and the vanilla adds a nice creamy, smooth flavor to it.
Sorry for being MIA lately. I was off traveling around and getting married! And bonus I bought some new Stash tea while I was out in Portland so I can’t wait to try those :)
I swear I already reviewed this tea.. but I can’t find it. Anyways, I still enjoy it. I think oolongs are becoming my new favorite type of tea (over black). Nice and roasty with a light flavor to it. Yummm.
