From Zest Tea

Earl grey black tea has been a popular blend since it was introduced to the British Earl, Charles “Chaz” Grey, in the 1830’s. Most Earl Greys are made with low-quality base teas, but not ours (remember the whole not compromising thing?). Zest’s Earl is made with premium Nilgiri Indian black tea blended with a delicious bergamot essential oil. Don’t thank us. Thank Chaz.

All Zest high caffeine teas have as much or more caffeine than a cup of coffee, or about 3 times the caffeine levels of normal teas. Earl Grey Black Tea by Zest Tea has about 155 mg/cup.

These teas from Zest Tea wake me up like nobody’s business, which is huge since I work nights and as I’ve mentioned often enough, I am not a morning person. I woke up bright an early (for me) at 8:30am, drank a cup of this tea and even though I’m still sick and only had 4 hours of sleep, I feel like I could move a mountain. I probably won’t, instead I’ll channel this extra energy into cleaning the living room (which currently looks like a bomb went off in Santa’s shop.)

Housekeeping have never been my strongpoint, so it’s a good thing I became a writer instead.

Now lets talk about flavor. In addition to packing a caffeinated punch this tea has a bold flavor full of malt and bergamot—it’s a great combination. There is a twinge of astringency and the tea does leave you with a little cottonmouth, so that’s something to keep in mind. But, if you’re looking for a strong flavored tea to get you going this is it my friends. I can’t wait to see how well it works when I’m battling jet lag this summer.

Backlog:

I’ve tried all four of the teas offered from Zest Tea and I enjoyed each and every one of them. This one was my favorite! Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/07/01/earl-grey-black-tea-from-zest-tea/

It’s a really good Earl Grey. A strong, delightful bergamot aroma. The flavor is a bit softer than the aroma suggests, but that’s OK. I’d rather the flavor be a bit softer than to be overdone. (An overdone bergamot just ends up tasting like soap or cologne.)

The black tea base is a Nilgiri and it’s rich, malty and robust. Smooth! A delightful base for the bergamot. I like the way the notes of malt mingle with the bergamot notes. It’s really quite a treat.

And with the “high octane” extra caffeine … this one will give you that swift kick in the pants that you need to get going!
