drank Cream Earl Grey by TeaFrog
304 tasting notes

Update on this tasting note: The smell in the bag, CREAM. It is incredible. Could not wait until the 3 minute brewing time was over, took a deep smell…I know that smell…butter on toast…I’m not sure. Taste, good in fact yummy. Maybe I do like this EG, but alas, as I got closer to the end of the cup, the bitterness, astringency reared its ugly head and then it was there…the perfume, the flowers…ugh…I give up on the Earl. Sorry Jean-Luc Picard, I wanted to like it…I really did….I could not believe something that smelt so good in my cup was doomed to failure. So I tried this again..the bitterness and perfume was gone in this cup. I did like it and I do plan to taste more EG in the future. Thanks Jean-Luc for not letting me give on your staple tea:)

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
