It has been a couple days since I have had this, mainly because I’m running really low but also because I have so many other great teas right now. This tea is something else. Earl Grey was one of the first teas that I really, really loved but I have had such a hard time finding the Earl Grey that was made for me. I either find them too light on the bergamot, too much like perfume, or just generally gross due to the inferior tea base sometimes used.
But this tea, my fellow Steepsterites, is my perfect Earl Grey. It has not been often in my tea experience that I’ve come across a tea that I think about so often that it is almost borderline obsessive. That is what this tea does to me. The only other tea that ever came close was the Red Dragon by Adagio that Erin so generously send my way in my early
Steepster days. That tea, however, could not earn the elusive rating of 100 because it was a blend of Earl Grey, Irish Breakfast, and Ceylon. I was afraid that any of the aforementioned teas would not be as amazing separate from the group.
To this day, I have yet to find a tea that will receive the rating of 100. I’ve thought all along that I would only give such high honors to one tea per category/type of tea, which still leaves room for lots of teas rated 100. I am definitely sure now, that this tea has earned its slot as the first 100 rated tea from me and my 100% Perfect Earl Grey.
