La la la LEMON!

So I have been on a mission the last week to try all of DT’s Earl Grey themed blends and at this point I have almost crossed them all off my list most recently adding The Earl of Lemon to the list, it was hard to select between this and Countess of Seville, next time Countess, next time.

Dry this tea has a lovely aroma that just makes me feel great, it almost reminds me of a lemon meringue pie just not as powerful, this was pretty much the selling feature for me on this tea. The steeped aroma is even lighter with a hint of your typical Earl Grey aroma combined with a lemon twist.

The final brew is very light in color and has a softer taste then I was expecting, that said it was absolutely great its hard to say but this may have trumped Cream of Earl Grey as my favorite Earl Grey blend from David’s it’s certainly a different twist on a classic, but man oh man it is just so good to drink. Will certainly be keeping this on hand for myself and friends that want to branch out from the traditional Earl Grey. Probably would have scored 100 points but the soft flavor ruined it for me a bit if it was 10-15% more flavorful this would be a deadly tea.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
