From Old Wilmington Tea Co

This blend was created to honor Lord John Grey, a favorite literary character from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. A classic combination that brightens any day. Our artisan Earl Grey blend is highlighted by bright and lively black tea from Sri Lanka, a hint of orange, and blue cornflowers. The aroma of this tea is stunning and carries a lovely charm about it. We especially enjoy this tea slightly sweetened and with a good book. Here’s to you Lord John!

Ingredients: ceylon black tea, oil of bergamot, citrus peels & blue cornflower petals

Third try — this time, steeped just over 3 minutes and, as I think LiberTEAS commented after my first tasting note, at about 3 minutes the bitterness seems to appear. It’s nowhere near the first steeping I noted, which was a little over 4 minutes So the ideal seems to be just under or at 3 minutes. I’m still not sure I’d re-order, though.

This tea company is not far from where I live. I have to put it on my “must visit” list.

Wouldn’t it be fun to visit!

This was another goodie from LiberTEAS!!!

This is a lot like a few Lady Grey’s I have had…
a lighter version of an Earl Grey…not as harsh on the bergamot or floral tastes, ya know!?

This is nice – when you are in the mood!

The dry leaf does smell amazing. It smells more like orange than bergamot (which I know is actually an orange, but you know what I mean, right?)

The brewed liquor loses some of that aroma, which saddens me a bit because I really love the smell of the leaf.

The flavor is quite different from Earl Grey. The bergamot is altered by the addition of the orange, and this becomes a fruit flavored black tea as opposed to an Earl Grey (I guess that’s why they call this John Grey instead of Earl, eh?) There is also a faint bitterness that tastes rather odd when this tea is unsweetened – this one is so much better with a sprinkling of sugar or a drizzle of agave or honey… I chose agave.

It’s ok… not great… but not terrible either.
