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 not a review in any way. However, I did make this for my fiance today, he was not feeling well, and said he wanted some tea. He loves Earl Grey, so since I was not planning on ever having this sample, I made it for him.

The smell, is much stronger, more fragrant, and maybe a little sweeter than other Earl Grey teas I have smelled/had. I did not taste it, but he said it was the best Earl Grey he has ever had. Take that for what you will, if you like Earl Grey, you should definitely try a sample of this.

I have never been a huge fan of Earl Grey – but I love this one! The background tea is a wonderful black tea base that is not overwhelmed with Bergamont. And the addition of lavender is perfect! The only Earl Grey I will drink now!

Right up front, I like Earl Grey. This one, however, is not doing it for me. The dry leaves smell wonderful, citrusy with maybe, maybe a back-note of lavender. The aroma of the tea is muted citrus, but the flavor is like the bitter white pithy part of the orange that you’re not supposed to eat. I don’t know it that’s the influence of the lavender or not, but it’s not a plus. A very harsh brew—

I’ve been craving black tea and it really came out while tasting the melon that I needed to brew a black tea as well to satisfy this.
This tea smells wonderful. So relaxing and full. The lavender really relaxes me (I’m very susceptible to lavender.
The flavor is not what I was expecting. The citrus seems stronger in the scent then the taste. Maybe it will come out more as it cools. The lavender is definitely there.
It does a bit. I may try steeping longer next time and see if I can get a bit more flavor out of this. It’s not bad though and I would consider getting it. Due to the lavender this is a tea for after I get home for the day.

The smell is not as overpoweringly bergamot as a lot of earl greys. It smells citrusy sweet and almost floral. The taste is also mellower on the bergamot than some, allowing the tippy sweetness of the tea to come through along with a bit of maltiness. Mildly astringent. Brews up dark amber.

I remember this being a very decent earl grey, slightly on the creamy side, but still with a fair dose of citrusy bergamot (blergophobics beware!). The base tea was top-quality and very, very tasty.

While this would not win the earl-grey-on-hand spot in my cupboard, I am really glad I tried it. It was certainly a good cup and it resteeped very nicely too. Anyone who is on a hunt to try as many EGs as possible should check this one out!

Ok, this is the second EG tea of the day for me.

When I got this tin last week, I opened it up and was unprepared for the sheer tidal wave of lavender scent that was unleashed. Seriously, the lavender smell was overwhelming, and I was worried that it would taste like a bar of soap.

Tentatively, I tried this today to compare to the other EG I’ve got, Davids Tea’s Cream of Earl Grey. And oh boy, were my fears confirmed.

I opened the tin. The overpowering lavender smell escaped. I carefully measured out a spoonful and put it in my infuser. I poured the hot water over the leaf. Upon first sniff, my fears were allayed – the immediate smell of the wet leaf when it was brewing was bergamot.

Then, as I let it steep, the lavender smell returned, albeit not as strong. I pulled out the infuser, set it aside, inhaled, and then took a sip.

God, this tastes like soap. I have never had lavender in a tea before, but if they’re all like this, then I will stay FAR away from it in the future. As a perfume? Great. As a soap? Lovely. But as a tea? Blech. As the tea cools down, the lavender flavour becomes more apparent, and actually feels like acid or something peppery on my tongue. The tea itself is not astringent, but the lavender in it contributes to an astringent sensation. Not sure if I’m explaining this right, but the mouthfeel is definitely affected.

I can smell bergamot in there and taste it in the aftertaste, but this is NOT a good mix. Someone, anyone, if you’re reading this: I will gladly send it to you as a swap. Pretty please?

I am not an Earl Grey person. Never have been. I brewed this tea because it was part of the sampler and I wanted to give it a chance. But I will not rate this tea because I have no understanding of Earl Grey teas – beyond the fact that I usually don’t like them.

HOWEVER, I will say that this tea smells heavenly, and that it was even sort of pleasant.
And I did finish the cup – which is saying a lot for a non-Early Grey person

I told myself I wouldn’t review any more black teas, because they all tend to sound the same.

But one note here: It is “better Earl Grey.” When I cut open my sample bag and inhaled, before I even read the description here, I said, “wow it smells like Earl Grey. But better.”

The taste is better, too, and has the potential to be delicious. If you’re into that sort of thing.

Now I see where the Earl goes when he’s not at home in other teas! Too Much bergamot, unable to be tamed by either milk or sugar. You need to go back to your other homes!
