drank Earl Grey by Rishi Tea
21 tasting notes

I used to like Earl Grey, and I heard that this is the best. I have to admit, it was just OK to me. It made me realize that I don’t enjoy Earl as much as I thought. My main gripe is that it was too perfumey, and the bergamot was overpowering. I enjoyed it, just fine, but I wasn’t blown away.

Bio

I still consider myself to be relatively new to the world of tea; started about 3 years ago. There are just too many things to try to consider oneself truly proficient with such a limited exposure.

My favorites are Japanese Tamaryokucha, Chinese Dancong, and Taiwanese Eastern Beauty. I also enjoy a decent pu-erh, from time to time.

I use gongfu-style preparation, and a gaiwan. But sometimes, I just use a medium Finum basket, and 6oz cup.

I’m always open to suggestions, or advice. So, feel free, and don’t be a stranger. I’ve been receiving some interesting suggestions from other reviewers, and I’m looking forward to trying these other teas.

So far, everyone on Steepster has been very kind, and welcoming, and I enjoy participating in the community.
