First off, thank you Terri Harplady for swapping with me. It is my suspicion Ms Theresa was out of the room while little Terri stuffed the box. My lands Terri you doubled the number of teas I have. I won’t tell Ms Theresa if you don’t.

I started sorting the box to decide which teas to drink first. My plan was to begin the assault with green teas as I think they age quickest. But then, I spotted an Earl Grey and all reason went out the window. Must drink Earl Grey.

This is a nice one. The level of bergamot is about the same intensity as Twinings but since this uses actual oil of bergamot it is far more complex and less biting. The base tea is extremely smooth when hot. As it cools it picks up some briskness and a little drying. A satisfying cup for Earl Grey enthusiasts and Star Ship Captains everywhere.

Earl Grey hot. Make it so Number One. Engage. Sorry, I’ll stop now. Live long and prosper.

Ooooo, sounds like an exciting box! Enjoy!

Don’t you love ooh-look-what’s-in-the-mail days? Wrong series, I know, but you’ve got me craving Deep Space Nine. I have a thing for Odo.

K S

Yes, love good mail days! I used to watch DS9 all the time. Quark amused me. I thought DS9 was far better than TNG. I liked Picard but in general I thought TNG tried to hard to be bigger and better.

Terri HarpLady

Yay! So glad you like this one!
I was a fan of ALL the star trek shows!

gmathis

Tribbles crossover and (hubby’s favorite) Vic in the holosuite—what’s not to like?

K S

When TNG did the simple relationship shows I enjoyed them – one of my favorites being when Picard returned to earth to visit his brother on his orchard. They were living the simple life free of technology but they still used all kinds of gadgets we can only imagine.

Robert Godden

As enjoyable as this discussion is – I’m an original cast Star Trek fan myself – on behalf of the Devotea, can we engage warp speed to the next tasting note? We can’t wait to hear what you think!

K S

Scotty we need warp drive online now. Captain, I’m giving it all she’s got.

I have some Lady Grey that will be coming up soon.

Anybody who knows me by now knows that I’m not a fan of the Earl. Most Earl Grey’s feel acidic to my stomach, & on a general rule I don’t really care for them. Tony, on the other hand adores them. So I made him a cup of this one, & after a few sips, he said, “Where did you get this?”.
:)
I love it when Tony is impressed with a tea! I even took a few sips, & actually, it’s a pretty nice. one. Very drinkable.

Robert Godden

Interest in your thoughts on Lady Devotea, which I imagine is among your purchases. It’s lighter on the bergamot with oranges and lavender to smooth some of the traditional Earl Grey bitterness.

Terri HarpLady

Tony & I will probably try that one out tomorrow. I’m hoping I’ll love it, but I like lavender in my teacup even less than bergamot (although I adore the aroma of both). So hopefully the lavender is light, because orange & black are lovely together! :)

terri’s mean. She knows i’ll drink anything she sends me. So i drank this one…and let me tell you the blergamot smell of this one is INSANE! but i brewed it up, and thankfully the actually brewed cup isn’t nearly as knock your socks off blergamot. If i close my eyes and pretend it’s not blergamot, i think that ppl who like eg’s might enjoy this one as it is a fairly smooth cup of tea. It’s just not the EG to win me over to the dark side.. nope. no siree…

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I probably should have gave it to KS or Tony, but I know you want to try ALL the teas, heh!

Sil

no! someday i’ll find an EG i love…it’ll happen

JustJames

….bLergamot. lmao. awesome. awesome awesome awesome. i feel the same. the word has been rewritten in my brain for life!!!

OMGsrsly

I think this is hilarious. But I promise I won’t send you any blerg unless it’s something pretty unique, like that puerh. :)

TeaBrat

Sil, have you tried Lord bergamot from Steven Smith? That’s one earl gray I actually like :)

Sil

hmmmmm of that i’m not sure… steepster says i haven’t tried it yet heh

Terri HarpLady

Hmmm….I was pretty sure I sent you some…when I had some, but that was probably a year ago.

AmazonV

I gotta second lord bergamot from steven smith as one worth giving a go!

Terri HarpLady

As I recall, when I first tried Lord Bergamot I kind of liked it, because of the Assam (vs ceylon) base. But on later attempts, I didn’t care for it so much.
