Tea at elevensies…… (SRP #23)

Mmmmm. Not sure I expected much from this one, but I like it. I think this will probably be in the cupboard someday since it comes from a place I regularly shop and it is currently only $6.80 for 125 grams. (Hmm….I wonder what it will taste like with a little jasmine…..yes, there seems to be a theme running though my tea selections as of late.) Bright bergamot on a smoth green base. Not a hint of bitterness.

Usual mug method, 3 minutes at about 185.

How does this compare bergamotwise to the Empire Tea version? Upton’s regular EG says it is a light English version. I like my bergamot with guts.

I would not call it light. I like a heft to my bergamot, and this one fits me. I am thinking it will be my replacement for Earl Green at Empire. I am also trying to cup back on extraneous orders. There are times when I order from a place for a single tea, and that seems kind of silly unless the tea in question is unmatchable. Earl Green from ETS is a wonderful tea, but I am not sure it is so much more wonderful than this one….

Thanks. There were no reviews on Upton’s site. I have heard great thing about them in general but was concerned this would be too light so glad to hear otherwise. ETS is within a couple hours for me so once a year I can justify a drive. I actually liked their Ti Kuan Yin better than Teavivre’s.

My green tea for the day, drunk just in case I have decided to stop hating this since the last time I tried it. That’d be a no! Earl Grey green tea is really weird. BUT! I think I kind of liked the base tea. So that’s interesting.
