Can’t remember where I grabbed this solo teabag from. It’s a decent earl grey with more of a light feel to it (grapefruit, maybe?) although it’s definitely a black. Zero floral notes, thankfully. A tiny bit malty and creamy.
Flavors: Earl Grey, Grapefruit, Malt
I was feeling rather tired this afternoon, and none of the few caffeinated teas I had in my cupboard sounded appealing. I’ve been drinking them for the past month or so and I wanted something new. Unfortunately, my Herbal Infusions order from the beginning of January got lost in the mail, so they’re sending me another one, and my packages from Butiki and the Monthly TTB club just got mailed out, so I was anxiously awaiting them. I saw this on my Tea Wreath, and decided to try it, with a bit of sweetener. It was a reasonably pleasant cup of tea, but I think I’m coming to the conclusion that fruit-flavored blacks aren’t really my thing. But, when I was about halfway through the cup, the doorbell rang and BOTH my Butiki teas, and my Monthly TTB were delivered! So, I finally have new teas to review in the days to come.
It really doesn’t make any sense that I like this tea.
For the most part, I don’t like Earl Grey and Bergamot oil flavorings. Or maybe I just don’t like Earl Grey, since Paris by Harney & Sons is enjoyed by me (although the bergamot part is my least liked part of it, hmm…..)
Either way, this is also a bagged tea. For some reason I really dig it though. I have drank almost two boxes in the past year or so, which is good for me. Despite being a bagged tea, Lady Grey, the Holiday Spice, and English Breakfast from Twinings always taste great to me.
Here’s a nod to Lady Grey, a bagged tea that, for whatever mysterious reason, accomplishes something with me. It’s a happy cup that’s cheerful, smooth, easy, bright with citrus but not tang or astringency.
Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon
I cannot believe the last time I reviewed I hadn’t even had Lily yet! She is now 16 months old! Harder to find time to review but of course I’m still drinking tea. Appreciating it more now, I think. Not taking for granted those moments of stillness and calm that are a rarity as a mommy. It’s the best though, it really is. My girl is my world.
Alright now! Miss Lady Grey.. I think I’d had this before but I can’t remember what I thought of it. It was on sale so I picked it up while grocery shopping yesterday.
Pleasantly surprised at the strong flavor! I’ve had quite a few weak earl greys that especially don’t hold up well to milk and sugar. This one sure does! I think I was expecting Lady Grey to be lightly flavored with bergamot but rather the base isn’t as bold and heavy letting the citrus shine through beautifully! The fruity flavors take the front stage and that’s what I wanted! Yum! I had this last night as well as this morning it’s so enjoyable. I actually put a dash of vanilla extract in it last night and I loved the vanilla citrus combo. They should make a vanilla lady grey! One of my new favorites :)
I can’t believe I’ve never had a Lady Grey before. I really enjoy Earl Greys but never really went beyond it much. Well. I am really enjoying it. I only steeped it for 2 min. as I have found I really don’t like oversteeped black tea. I put in a touch of vanilla stevia and swooned. I mean… lovely. The bergamot was a little be further back that in an EG which was OK. The other citrus flavors were well balanced. I always like the appearance of the cute little blue cornflowers whether I really taste them or not. I made this just before I was supposed to go walk with a friend. I really wanted to sit down and sip slowly but… exercise calls. I threw it in tumbler and enjoyed it while walking. (I’ve now lost 35 lbs.) :-D
Flavors: Bergamot, Lemon, Orange
