The tea in raw form contains long and thin Keemun leaves with lovely blue cornflowers and large curly orange flower pieces. It has a very strong bergamot and orange essence that is fresh and floral with a touch of sweetness. The quality looks very nice but there are a couple of Keemun stem pieces amongst the blend.

Brewing Instructions: Add 3g of tea per cup into a teapot and steep with boiling water for 4-7 minutes according to taste.

As my teapot holds roughly three cups full I will be using three fairly heaped teaspoons of tea. One good teaspoon of tea works out to be roughly 3g. Plus I adore strong Earl Grey so I will be going for a 6 minute steep. Also for the sake of this review I shall not be adding any milk or sweetener.

Once steeped this tea is light amber in colour and has a strong waxy orange aroma.

In flavour this is strong, sweet and refreshing with pure orange and bergamot tones that are waxy yet juicy. There is a mellow misty aura which helps to tone down some of the strength which I believe is down to the Keemun base. Also detecting a subtle perfumey after taste with a little dryness. Very smooth and velvety.

Usually because I like my Earl Grey strong I have to add milk and maybe even a sugar or two to tone down the bitterness but this tea is light enough that I wouldn’t need to add anything to it to enjoy it.

I didn’t know what to expect from a tea that claims to be Posh Earl Grey but now I know Posh means delicious. This is the kind of Earl Grey blend that stays traditional enough to still be Earl Grey but also has enough added to give it that extra push in flavour. Simple yet effective. I do love my Earl Grey and I now also love this blend. I would happily recommend this to any other Earl Grey fans out there.

Backlog:

Sorry about the number of backlogs … I’m trying to get caught up.

This is a delightful Earl Grey offering from Lu-Lin Teas. I’ve tried a few Lu-Lin teas now (watch for more reviews coming soon) and I have been very impressed with their teas. And it’s a really nice company too, having had a few email conversations with Hannah from Lu-Lin. She is really pleasant, and I appreciate her dedication to fine teas.

This is a very silky tasting tea. Very smooth … with a nice balance between tea flavor and bergamot. Here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/01/30/posh-earl-grey-from-lu-lin-teas/

Smell: I found the scent very bold when I first opened the sealed package. While it was steeping, it was probably the same level of boldness too. I enjoyed it quite a bit as I had this bed later in the evening and didn’t want to sleep anytime soon. It’s definitely so far a great pick me up blend to brew!

Taste: I’m usually not a huge fan of earl grey blends but this one has me rethinking that now. To me, the smell is quite deceiving because I feel like the flavours I got from just one sip were completely different. That’s not a bad thing either. I say this because it didn’t taste too strong or overwhelming like the scent may have. The main flavour I can get out of it is most likely the orange flowers. It adds a great, subtle sweet hint to the blend which makes it quite honestly, outstanding! My favourite part about it is how the flavours just keep on lingering on the tip of your tongue. The bergamot and zesty orange notes are an excellent combination for this medium high level caffeine blend.

This is the Earl Grey for me. I brewed this tea with a friend (who claimed to not be an Earl Grey fan) a couple of days ago. We used 3g of tea for a “normal” sized teapot and I have to say it really was quite delicious.
Fuity and floral but not too strong or overwhelming which really is something I look for in my Earl Grey and it can be hard to find.
Even my non earl grey drinking friend enjoyed her brew which speaks volumnes to me!
