Another gray (or should that be Grey) day, cold and rainy. This EG has a lot of bergamot so it works well with a short steep. 2 min. at the most. I added a little of my Vanilla Creme Stevia. A wonderful cup of tea. Still feeling lazy, but maybe the caffeine will kick in soon. I promised myself that I wouldn’t watch last night’s Marvel: Agents of Shield except if I was walking on the treadmill. So let’s get this energy pumped up and get going…

The caffeine kicked in and i complete my first mile of the day in 18 min. with the treadmill set at 2.5 incline. I watched the first part of M:AOS and am continually amazed at the twists and turns in these stories. I am using an ActiveLink monitor from Weight Watchers and am trying to get 4 1/2 to 5 miles a day. I’m doing pretty good but I think I’ll need another hit of caffeine. I walk 3 miles later in the day with my blind friend. We walk on an indoor track so there are no excuses about weather, etc. So I need about 1 -2 miles on the treadmill. I will loose weight, I will loose weight, I will loose weight! Tomorrow is another weigh in! Hmmm, I think I’ll go to one of my favorites, Chocolate Yerba Mate.

What brand vanilla creme stevia do you use?

I use SweetLeaf and NOW Better Stevia drops from a local health food store, Fruitful Yield. They have a whole bunch of flavors. I really like Vanilla and have just recently tried (and like) Chocolate for my Yerba Mate since I haven’t been able to find my favorite Chocolate Yerba Mate.

I’m a newbie to brewing and tasting, so take my review with a grain of salt.

I found this Earl Grey to have a much stronger bergamot taste than other Earl Greys I’ve had from Twinings and Republic of Tea. And the Republic of Tea one I had was Earl Greyer, which I assume meant it was supposed to have MORE bergamot. Compared to this, it doesn’t though!

Despite the strong bergamot taste, it wasn’t bad. I usually understeep teas because I hate the bitterness of over-steeping, but this one I steeped a bit longer than usual since I was distracted. I did 3 minutes when I typically try for 2. And it didn’t come out bitter at all which was a huge relief.

But the bergamot is pretty overpowering. I will finish the 2 oz I bought, and then search for an Earl Grey that has less.

Edit: As time goes on, and I try to finish what I have, the bergamot becomes really off-putting due to how overpowering it is. Bleh.

Hey, everyone has different tastes. Don’t keep apologizing for being new. You seem to be doing great. Don’t forget to add your profile. I also shop at Sereneteaz. Not too many Steepsters seem to but it isn’t too far from my house. OK, actually its about 20 miles but there isn’t much else besides a Teavana (which is also good!) in my area. OK again about 20 miles. Through rain, snow, sleet or hail the Steepsters will do anything for some tea! Welcome!
