I came here to kick butt and review tea, and I AM ALL OUT OF BUTT TO KICK.
After a spectacularly productive morning of cat-sitting, dog-walking, and plant-watering, I was ready for a little bit of time with tea and a book.
Am I stereotypical and pretentious? Yes. Yes, I am.
This tea, Lady Grey, is the tea that first made me think “hey, this could be a thing I do. I could become a tea person.”
Now that I’ve become a “tea person,” I return to the original.
I find this to be a bit astringent (bitter, mouth-drying) and over-flavored with bergamot and orange. I’ve discovered other things that I like more.
However, this is still a solid basic choice. I’d never turn it down. A part of me will always love it.
Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot, Drying, Lemon Zest, Orange
Twinings’ Lady Grey is light, lemony, and very delicate. I’m feeling really under the weather today, so I reached for this simple blend for a bit of comfort. It reminds me of when I first started discovering tea when I was younger. For me, it’s a classic comforting cup.
I guess Twinings created it in the 90’s for Scandinavian nations that felt Earl Grey was far too pungent. It was a hit then, and for me it remains a faithful friend.
Did I mention that it is light..? XD
Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest
I have to admit this first time that I tried this… I was not a fan. I love Earl Grey and my cousin was convinced that I would love this one too. After awhile and alot of different steep times, I found a good happy cup of tea for myself. I like how this tea has alot more fruity flavors such as : Lemon, Orange, and Bergamont. I live the convenience of tea bags in the morning. Overall while not my first choice it is up there and I would recommend this tea.
Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest
I’m not a big fan of Earl Gray teas. The bergamont is usually way to strong and its not a flavor I particularly like (which is surprising since I adore citrus).
However, in Lady Gray this flavor is very slight and the lemon and orange stand out much more. Light, pleasant, and a bit up beat. Nice for a morning when you have not had enough sleep.
Flavors: Lemon Zest, Orange Zest
Drank this tea this morning with a splash of grapefruit juice! I very much enjoy this tea. It’s such an easy cup to sip in the morning. Something comfortable and familiar about the tea base. It doesn’t make a bold cup but somehow that works with the lemon overtone. This tea will always be an easy choice for me.
Preparation: Bagged tea. Honey to sweeten. Splash of grapefruit juice. (confession: I left the bag in the cup and drank around it)
Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Lemon, Tea
