80

I was given a sample of this tea to review, but because it’s part of the new fall line-up, it won’t be on their website until October. I do hope they add it a little early, because I would love to get more of it both for moving forward in the Battle of the Earl Greys on my blog and to just sit back and enjoy.

This is a surprisingly well-balanced and enjoyable Earl Grey, and I was very tempted to just find a comfy place to curl up with a book and enjoy it. The bergamot was strong enough to give it the distinctive Earl Grey flavor profile, but mild enough that it was sweet and lacked any astringency. No dry mouth with this one!

Unfortunately, I have to preserve the rest of the sample for the next round, but it did re-steep well, which also holds it apart from many Earl Greys.

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!
