Well the maté wasn’t as helpful as I would have liked, and I’m still feeling really sluggish. I have to lecture today, though, so I have to find some energy somewhere. I thought a nice, brisk Earl might give me the kick in the pants I need. I’ve always liked this tea a lot but I don’t turn to it all that often because I’m always trying something new and complicated. This definitely qualifies as a “brisk” Earl Grey… the bergamot is really bright and almost sharp, but it’s not bitter or astringent. A pretty good choice to get me going, I think.

I hope it gave you the kickstart you needed. I could have done with some today too. I think my students thought I was still asleep! :)

Finishing and decupboarding this one. I still taste raw potato emanating from the mineral and metal notes. It makes me think of factories and smelters. Interesting at first, but not what I’m looking for in an Earl Grey or indeed any daily breakfast tea, and it didn’t grow on me over time. I’ve only tasted a couple of Tavalon teas so far, but I’m wondering if in general they try to go for a sort of a stark taste. They say their aim is to bring tea to the American palate. Perhaps the belief is our palates are too coated in trans fats and high fructose corn syrup to be able to appreciate subtlety and they need industrial strength purging?

Well, if you see the commercial that says that Kraft singles are a result of the “American Dream”, then I can see why they might think we need industrial strength purging!
