From Ocean of Tea

This is the finest Earl Grey we’ve ever had. Blended from Yunnan Dian Hong harvested from antique tea trees with natural Bergamot citrus from Southern Italy, this tea is world class. Very limited!

Backlog:

A seriously awesome Earl Grey! This has a strong bergamot essence both in dry leaf aroma and in brewed tea aroma … and in flavor! It’s a strong bergamot taste but it doesn’t taste soapy or perfume-y. It just tastes bright and uplifting, the way a good Earl Grey should taste.

Smooth and nicely round. The black tea base is full-flavored and robust and satisfying. The bergamot has a few light floral notes popping in here and there throughout the sip but mostly I get a bright burst of citrus-y notes which is just the way I want it to be when I’m drinking Earl Grey.

A VERY very good Earl Grey! In my top 5. Although I admit that my top 5 seems to change a lot. But this one belongs there.

MEGA BERGAMONT ALERT! Bergamontasaurus RAWRRRR! This is the strongest bergamont earl grey I’ve ever tried.

This earl grey is for the bergamont lovers with constant bergamont flavor throughout the sip. So much bergamont, the tea is refreshing end of sip. The black is really background here, but isn’t dry or bitter. I like bergamont heavy earl greys, so I liked this earl grey.

Enjoying the last of this today from Ocean Of Tea. This is an excellent Earl Grey. It has enough bright citrusy bergamot to cause the faint of heart to become weak in the knees – Sil ;P The black tea base is likewise assertive with enough astringency to make you notice without causing turmoil or harshness. This. This, is Earl Grey done right. Much love.

TheTeaFairy

Haha! Yes, I can totally picture Sil becoming weak in the knees.

But I support Bergamot lovers 100%!!

So, I have started a new and exciting project! I have decided to make my own tea tray for my various Gongfu brewing sessions. Let’s just say I am tired of spilling water everywhere on my desk, and since I am not so much having the monies I decided to be all crafty. Using a frame, some paint stirrers, some caulk, varnish, a small cake pan, and paint, I will create my new toy. Pictures will show up when I finish it…or tears will flow if I ruin it!

Today’s tea is an English tea time classic! Considered to be one of the most famous Western teas, I certainly know I have been drinking it since I was a tiny child. Earl Grey Premium by Ocean of Tea is a blend of premium black tea and bergamot oil, as expected from a tea named Earl Grey Premium. The aroma is a very potent bergamot, bright and lemony! It is certainly a tea to sniff when you want to wake up and be alert. There is also a tiny bit of sweetness and a nice finish of malt.

Brewing the leaves brings out a much stronger malty tone to the very citrus heavy tea. I am amazed at how fresh the bergamot aroma’s is, it smells more like sniffing a fresh fruit than the oil. The liquid once the leaves have been removed is creamy and malty with a hint of cocoa and strong bergamot. It smells quite zingy!

Tasting time! The mouthfeel is dry, not rasping and puckering, but a nice brisk dryness. The tea is a little astringent, but not unpleasantly so, it has that brisk bite to it that really wakes you up. I know some people really object to teas having any bitterness to it at all, I personally like it when certain black teas have a bit of a bite…not enough to be nasty of course, just that hint, kinda like eating fresh kale or bitter greens, I just find it tasty. Of course there is more to this tea, there is a nice bergamot kick that leaves a bit of sourness causing a salivary response, goodbye dryness! After that there is smooth malt and a subtle sweetness that lingers to the finish. Usually when I describe an optimal Earl, I am lauding the tea’s tendency to not kick me with bergamot, this Earl certainly kicks with bergamot, but it is such a fresh and clean citrus taste that I really like it.
