Delightful! Today has been a fantastic mail day – I got two packages of tea (and these orders arrived SO fast!) and a package of art goodies, as well as good news from my bank… and NO BILLS!

This is one of the teas I received today… and it’s delightful. It is a lighter version of Earl Grey, in my opinion, because the bergamot is a bit lighter. But along with that, it has a crisper, cleaner taste than some Earl Grey teas I’ve encountered. It doesn’t taste heavy or oily or soapy… just beautifully bergamot-y!

YUM!

Yay for good mail days! (I was a rural mail carrier’s daughter; the need for real letters goes deep in the DNA :)

Alright, having another go at this one. Reduced steeping time to 2 minutes, and the temp down to 200*. The odd flavor that I was thinking was “dusty” is still kinda there, and there’s still astringency (quite a bit for only 2 minutes), but I think what I’m getting now is more…meaty? Proteiny? It’s so hard to find the words for it. It’s much more palatable at this time/temp…I’m still not really getting much bergamot taste, though.

Okay, after thinking on this tea, it reminds me of those paper tasting strips in my genetics class. Did anyone else do that? They’re little strips of paper that have chemicals in them…some people can taste these compounds, some can’t, and the ability to taste each different compound is, apparently, a single gene trait. I don’t remember which ones we did, but I do remember being the only one who had to run out of the room to rinse my mouth out after trying one of them.

Okay, back to the tea…I did get a better cup this time around, and, in fact, actually finished the pot. I think I’ll shorten the steep even more next time around.

(And a big thanks to LiberTEAS for taking the time to help me out with this blend. You’re awesome!)

My second Earl Grey of the day, and third in my tea bag sipdown today. I’m not sure, but I feel like this one is suffering in my rating because of how much I enjoyed my cup before (Charleston Plantation’s). There is a unique black tea base to this one, and while I do enjoy it, I’m not loving it the way I did the other. When I added a half teaspoon of sugar the lemon flavour came to the forefront, making it a much lovelier cup, however it still isn’t perfect to me. Sippers who like unique mild twists to the classics should definitely look into this one. I do like it, but as I said, I just liked my cup before more.

What I do like about this one though is how quality the tea is for a bagged tea. I am seriously enjoying the quality that Teatulia puts into their teas!

This in an interesting take on an earl grey. A bit too much bermot for my taste though. I actually felt like I had oil coating my mouth and throat.
