drank Lady Grey by Twinings
186 tasting notes

Feeling really lazy this morning, so I did the standard bagged tea. I know, shame on me, but I still have some of it and I need to drink it before it gets more stale-tasting than it already does.

So it was Twinings Lady Grey this morning, and I have to say, it still sort of holds its own against the loose leaf I’ve tasted. It’s still probably the best Earl Grey I’ve had so far (and I’ve really hated quite a few), and it has a somewhat smooth but floral and citrus flavor. I was somewhat on autopilot this morning, drinking without thinking. So is it a complete knock-out? No. But I wouldn’t be disappointed if someone served me a steaming hot cup of this.

I feel you on the lazy. It’s 6.30pm now here and I haven’t had anything but bagged all day…

I am curious to see how (or if) your rating of this will be adjusted once you start trying some loose LGs or more floral EGs. So maybe you should drink this one up before you find a good one! :)

Haha, that might be true, Auggy! EG and me have a very rocky relationship. I’ll have to try that Mariage Freres you recommended!

I can’t find anywhere selling the 1854 anymore… I think it was a special edition. :( But the Rushka is good (I think). Sadly, the tea place nearest me doesn’t have it anymore either (but hopefully they will get it back or else I will have to find an online retailer for it.)

22-year-old NYC girl just starting out on her tea adventures! I used to hate tea. If you asked me a few years ago what I thought of tea, I’d tell you it tasted like hot, dirty dishwater. Not anymore! I acquired a taste for tea when I started drinking peppermint tea for my upset stomach problems. From there I graduated to teas like chamomile and Lipton. But Lipton wasn’t strong enough!

I’m getting the hang of this loose leaf thing. Black’s my default, but I’ve found that I really love teas that fall into every category. I’m a purist – I always drink my tea neat. I prefer unflavored tea over flavored tea, and really dislike anything flavored with artificial-tasting substances. I’ve grown up a bit in my tea drinking, and I find that novelty appeals to me less and less.

I also am the happy girlfriend of the boy that created the tea randomizer, which can be found here: http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php
