Thank you, Cavocorax, for sharing your sample of this tasty blend of teas with me! I had breakfast with his lordship, while Tony invited the Earl of Grey.
Petersham is a fine fellow, & I’d be glad to take tea with him anytime!

My Grandma came over this afternoon to see my house and I offered to make us some tea. I set out three including this one and let her pick. This is what she chose. She loved it! She said it reminded her of her typical Orange Pekoe with just a little something else…I’ll learn her one of these days. ;) Considering the US blend has five different teas in it. But we had a nice time enjoying our tea together.
This was in my Amoda box! I finally got around to reviewing it after packing half of it up for TerriHarpLady.
Now I almost wish I wasn’t sharing it!! Bahahahahah. (Not really though – I have some excellent samples coming my way).
I was surprised by this. It’s smooth, yet astringent in a good way, bold, and a touch smoky! I should have had this in the morning, but I’ll resteep it and stay up instead. It’s almost a little creamy too? Wow. I’m happy I gave the Amoda box a try!
This one feels even stronger in some ways than the other two breakfast blends I’ve tried so far from The Devotea. It’s smooth though, just like they were; the body feels less like a coat but there’s a welcome slight leaf bitterness that works with the smoothness. I might like 1910 a skosh more for the surprising flavors at the end of its sip, but this is nice too. The color in the cup is gorgeous, clear but deep, a warm brown smoothly burnished with a bit of ruby. Breakfast blends! Along with after dinner Assams you are getting me through this endless winter and for that, many thanks.
funnily enough, I didn’t realise that i’d had this tea before via someone’s amoda box :) So colour me surprised when i saw a rating there…which i’ve since upped! This was a fabulously strong yummy cup of tea today. So i was either really in the mood for it or my tastes have changed slightly. It looks like straight blacks are my thing with the devotea, rather than the flavoured :)
Received this from Terri HarpLady.
I was having a difficult time figuring out how to describe this one. It is sweet, smooth, maybe its malty. It is definitely a STRONG tea for sure. Maybe some assam, or some Ceylon? Is that a Darjeeling? I really don’t even know if that is what I am tasting either. I thought maybe my taste buds were off from eating or drinking something. So I started doing some digging. I think the best way to describe this tea is how the company describes it : A blend of seven teas, named after an Regency/Georgian English gentleman with a massive collection of tea. Strong and black.
I was so thrilled when I saw this tea in the Amoda box back in May. (Yes, that’s how far behind I am. Yes, I hear Sil saying “she’s never going to get caught up” and laughing about it. It’s not funny Sil. I’ll get caught up. Just … quit laughing at me, Sil.)
Anyway … I love this tea. I love it. One of the very best black tea blends I’ve ever tried. This is like top-notch awesome. Like the awesome-est of the awesome awesomeness.
Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/05/19/lord-petersham-black-tea-blend-from-the-devotea/
I could see what looked like flecks of Darjeeling second flush and plump, tippy leaves of Golden Yunnan. The smell was earthy and floral. On introduction, there was a bit of a citrus snap, followed by a slight tannic bite in the middle, then it snapped at the top note with a presence of peppers, allspice, honey and Keemun sweetness.

A colleague of mine brought in some samples from The Devotea to try out, and this was one of them. It’s a great cup of tea! It’s one of those that holds up sweetened or not, and is good at any time of the workday. I’m sad I ran through so quickly, though I suspect I’ll be placing an order for some soon!
