I’ve been drinking this tea almost every day since I got it and am finally getting around to making a tasting note.

I thought in order for a tea to be an Earl Grey it needed to be infused with bergamot. However I do not taste any bergamot and do not see it listed in the ingredients.

Besides the lack of bergamot this is a good tea. It’s very creamy, I do not taste caramel but other creamyish flavors like vanilla. It’s a mild tea. Usually I brew it for 5 minutes but got impatient, next time I’ll be more patient, this cup is weak compared to the 5+ minute cups I’ve had before. I take it with milk and sugar.

To make up for the lack of bergamot I’ve tried brewing the leaves with other EG teas, like ETS double bergamot. The best combo I’ve found is half Dorian Grey and half Russian Earl Grey- Russian Earl Grey is on the other side of the Earl Grey spectrum.

Mr. Grey wants to do something, he just doesn’t know what that is yet. Hiding in the shadows, waiting for an opportunity to make a statement, he perhaps might be waiting quite a while. His many personalities speak of a mysterious combination and hint towards more like something of confusion. Walk down this tea-laden path at your own financial peril. Once this gent is up, I won’t renew.

This is a queued tasting note.

Split a pot of this with my mom at the Vintage Tea Room quite a while back when I was still in the process of moving, but far enough into it that all of my tea had been boxed. I was really, really looking towards external tea sources that week to keep myself from becoming completely unhinged.

Essentially, this is just a soft Earl Grey with caramel notes. There are other ingredients in the blend like apple and as assortment of floral things but you can’t especially taste any of them. This was pleasant enough on it’s own, with a nice light bergamot note but it was quite delicious with just a little bit of cream added in. That really elevated it quite nicely. Since the Vintage Tea Room is a tea room I paired this pot with a slice of some truly delicious Pecan Pie. Quite indulgent overall, but the citrus notes of the tea provided just enough deviation from the rich pairing.

The one thing I will say that I disliked was that this tea room brews “Grandpa” style so the last few cups of this were not so good. Quite bitter, actually. But it did the trick!
