This is a new tea line from two leaves and a bud featuring tradtional English style tea bags. This one is a solid basic Earl Grey. The bergamot is well balanced. It doesn’t jump out at you but you don’t have to think to find it. See my longer review http://theeverdayteablog.blogspot.com/2012/07/paisley-tea-co-organic-double-earl-grey.html
Today was my last day at work. 31 years 6 months then laid off. Actually today was pretty unemotional. I made a conscious decision earlier in the week to shake the dust off my feet as I left the place. Life is too long to hold on to hate and anger. Onward and upward.
Anyway I took all my tea home Wednesday with the intention of taking a few tea bags… but I forgot them. So, I borrowed this from a coworker. I gave him this one a while back in an attempt to expand his horizons beyond Lipton. Got me through the morning. Glad he hadn’t finished them all off yet.
Despite the name this is NOT a heavy Earl Grey. The bergamot is fairly tame by my standards. You do taste bergamot initially then it fades as the base takes over. What is neat about this tea is it is nice and fruity. The scent is like a Darjeeling although I have no idea what base is actually in this. It is strong and hearty like Assam. It has enough bite to leave yours cheeks tingling in the after sip without being bitter. A really nice bagged tea that is like a pat on the butt to help scoot you out the door in the morning.
Shameless plug – Through the month of September 2012, I am hosting a contest to give away two boxes of Paisley tea to two different winners. Follow my blog and leave a comment for a chance to win. Maybe I have made this too complicated? I am getting a lot of views, but very few signups and those that do, are generally not following directions. http://theeverdayteablog.blogspot.com/
First tea of the day. No think’n just drink’n Earl Grey in a bag. It gets the job done.
