Got this as a sample from Teajo Teas, thank you very much!!
Drank it for breakfast this morning.

I LOVE Earl Grey. If I have to go somewhere without tea (unlikely) I will seek out Earl Grey at a gas station or whatever. It’s comforting and flavorful and adding milk just makes it more creamy and delicious.

That’s what I did with this one – I added milk. I did two steeps of it and both were good. About 3 min for the first one.

It’s definitely more of the lemony type, but the citrus flavor doesn’t overwhelm the tea, which I appreciate. I don’t like SUPER lemony teas unless they are balanced off by some cookie or pie taste (Lemon Chiffon!).

So I enjoyed this, it was creamy with the milk, so the word “Silky” is not misused here. I would definitely order it!

Me and Earl Grey go together like Jean-Luc Picard and… Earl Grey.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
