From Golden Moon Tea

Tippy Earl Grey is Better Earl Grey

It’s difficult to improve upon a tea so revered as Earl Grey. But we believe we’ve done so, in creating a Tippy Earl Grey that takes the traditional and adds layers.

To start, the base of our Earl Grey contains substantially more tips than others. This requires meticulous plucking, and lends a unending complexity to your cup.

Then, we add not just the traditional oil of bergamot, but fresh, fresh lavender that blends sublimely with the citrus of the former.

All real reasons many open-minded connoisseurs of Earl Grey claim that Golden Moon’s Tippy is the best Earl Grey they’ve ever sipped.

This is a very fragrant, flavorful Earl Grey. I actually got the hints of lavender and jasmine they mention on the package, and I think I liked this better without milk than with. A bit of honey is nice, but it’s not harsh enough to need sweetener. All in all, pretty similar to the Buckingham Palace Garden blends, but with more of a kick. I expect to get a second steep out of this, but haven’t made it yet.

ETA: Oh wait, there’s actually lavender in the blend. In that case, it’s not so overpowering as to be unpleasant, but just faintly there. This is a plus, IMO, as I’m not a big lavender fan.

It’s a very passable Earl Grey.

It’s also just a very basic one. There are no surprises here. The flavors are very forward; behind them there’s a little bit of something like honey that I wish had a greater presence in the overall taste. I could drink this over sandwiches at lunch or brunch with milk/cream and sweetener (which is really the only way I ever drink Earl Grey, for whatever reason) and be satisfied with it, but I don’t think I’ll be ordering any more of it. There just isn’t anything about it that lifts it up above the endless heads and shoulders of other Earl Grey teas, and I think I’ve grown pretty fond of the added vanilla element in Earl Grey cream teas.

It smells good though. Mmm, lavender.

Thinking I’m going to brew my other two Earl Greys (both of which are of the aforementioned cream variety) and see how they compare.

It’s very dark. Smells like earl gray. Imho it’s always a good thing when something smells the way it’s supposed to :)
Tastes quite smooth. Bit bitter. Strong on bergamot. I went for a wake-up tea this morning and i think this could do it.
Not bad…

I’ve been remiss in logging my teas…so going back a couple of days. This tea was a puzzle. When I opened the sample, I got a strong smell of spearmint…like Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum. I was astonished by it so much that I called over a fellow tea drinker and asked him what he smelled! “Mint”, he said, looking at the lable askance. I/We have no idea whats up with that. Brewed the tea up, water just at boiling. Lots of floral notes and a little citrus…but not what I would identify as bergamot. The florals were present when drinking the tea, and again, not what I could call “Earl Grey”. In fact, it was more like “Lady Earl Grey” from Twinnings than anything else. As it cooled, the flavors got odd. Not such that you couldn’t drink it odd, but rather the florals receded and more of a citrusy mint something was left. I could drink this again, but there are much better teas to be had and its not something to please the Bergamot! Earl Grey crowd.

FRUIT LOOOOOOOPS!!!!!!!!! That is exactly what this tea smells and tastes like (IMO). I found an Earl Grey that I like! Thanks LiberTeas!

One of the best things about taking a long afternoon nap on a gray Saturday afternoon, is that it provides a second opportunity in one day for a good strong cup of “wake up” black tea (with milk and sugar, of course). When I smelled this tea, my first thought was “Holy bergamot, Batman!”. But, in my cup the bergamot is not overwhelming. This is a nice strong Earl Gray, which I like since it was one of the teas I grew up drinking in my teens.

Smooth earl grey tea. I took this to work with me and steeped it in my libre mug. Delicious. It didn’t need any additives.

I made a big 32oz iced tea out of this for my day at work. It was quite nice, a better Earl Grey, for sure. It’s the right amount for flavoring, not too much, and not to little. I like the black tea in this. The last Earl Grey was a little astringent and brisk. This was a lot smoother.

I prefer Earl Grey mixed in chocolate…mmm if you make chocolate truffles, steep some Earl Grey in your cream. It’s quite good!

This episode of Sniff ‘n’ Sip brought to you by…Lemon Pledge. For that fresh, lemony scent throughout your home.

This was my first Earl Grey. And a very fine first it was, indeed. Fragrance, dry: Basically, I wanted to strap the packet onto my nose like a horse’s feed bag. Goodness, me, does this smell good. So refreshing. Fragrance, steeped: More of the same, really; I almost burned my nose. Oops.

Flavour: Just as good as the fragrance and exactly as expected. No false advertising here!

Verdict: More, please. I have too much tea to justify buying this right now, but it’s definitely been added to the shopping list.

another black tea. If this becomes a routine I may actually end up buying some loose black tea for the mornings! I’ll have to see how early i wake up when classes /really/ start though.

Anyway, i take my earl grey with skim milk & equal.

Well, the tea smells like a typical earl grey! First sip—not much of a kick to it. Maybe I should have steeped it a little longer. Not bad though. Theres some spicy-ness to it that leaves sort of an aftertaste in your mouth. It must be from the citrus, I guess. The package says there is lavender, but I really don’t taste it.

Though, in a way this tastes no better than the earl gray I drank from bags. Tasty for sure, but I’ve had better earl grey tea from bags ;)
