From Green Raven Tea & Coffee

Brisk, medium-full bodied blend of small and broken leaf organic black teas from Darjeeling, Nilgiri, and Yunnan indirectly scented with organic bergamot peel extract. This approach to Earl Grey attempts to bring in a full bergamot aroma to the dry fragrance but maintain the flavors and aromas of fine black teas with a lighter “Breakfast Tea” flavor touched with just a bit of lingering citrus (rather than perfume) notes in the nose.

A bit more straightforward than the Artisan Earl Grey – which aims to shift dramatically in flavor and express the bergamot in aroma, taste, and tactile impression as a dance between citrus and tea flavor – this Earl Grey aims at a balance between the blanket flavors presented simultaneously. The tea base showcases distinct characteristic origin flavors of toasty hardwood and cocoa, ripe squash and rose, and the muscat grape notes Yunnan, Nilgiri, and second flush Darjeeling black teas are known for. A slight, balanced bitter and slick acidity lies quietly advertising the bergamot peel influence in concert with the lingering but relatively mellow astringency.

While not nearly as full-bodied or astringent as Assam based Breakfast teas, at longer steeps or higher concentrations this can still support a very small amount of milk and a touch of sweetener. The blend was actually crafted with a mind to the addition of a few drops of honey, which accentuates a little more of the floral characteristics.

Goodmorning.
Had a dramatic day yesterday, so I start out prepared today with compassioned, loyal and bitter Earl Grey at my side. The nightmare project seems never ending, and now the Universe seem to rot itself together againts me – thus me and the Earl sulk quietly at the corner.

Grins it’s really not that bad. But I reaally need a strong tea today, so Tommy’s basic Earl Grey followed me to school. I like the leaf’s. There was a lot of medium sized brown leafs, and some few lighter full leafs. (Don’t hang me up on it, I am drawing this from memory). It brewed up to a beautifull orange/brown tea.

The smell is very … Discreet?
Sips It’s well blended. I hate when the leafs and the flavors don’t mix well, but in this there is a flow, red tread, togetherness. It’s bitter – but not overly so. Just enough that you feel that you got a slap on the back from a gay mineworker.
(I kid… But seriusly, it’s like a slap in the back, a “wake up” tea)
Bergamot can easily be too strong or too weak, but this has a nice balanced amount.

How will I rate this? Actually I only found one Earl Grey that I fully enjoyed.
This joins it. (The Earl Grey Army! GAH! – Yes I am silly, but that’s why you read this isn’t it?) The other Earl Grey is very soft and smooth, but this is a “round person”.

Earl Grey and I sulk on.

Yay – glad you liked it!
I made a page for this earlier under the company name Green Raven Tea and Coffee, but I’ll move the page for you.

Thank you! It’s a life saver :)
I really tried finding it (I even checked all you tasting notes for reference) but with no luck :)

Rereading my description and your review makes me really happy in the fidelity of this. I always worry people won’t necessarily get the effects or notes I’m shooting for.

Reads the description" … *Grins
Awesome. I love that you recommended honey! I couldn’t put milk in the mug (Earl Grey didn’t beg) but I considered a little bit of honey… just a drop!
