This sample was given to me for review, and came with six of their other Earl Grey blends. I’ve made my way through over half of them now, and this is by far the best Earl Grey in the lineup. The general Earl Grey was a bit of a mild cup, but this one packs a lot more punch!

Most of its assertiveness is due to a much larger dose of bergamot – it smells amazing and translates very well into the cup. There is a slight astringency, but adding a dash of milk is all you need to balance it out.

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
