I honestly don’t know what happened, but my experience with this tea does not read like any of the other reviews on here. It was actually a bit of a nightmare to try to dial in a cup that was neither watery nor bitter, and I finally threw in the towel. During this whole project, I have never been this frustrated with an Earl Grey.

Does anyone have suggestions?

Here’s the link to my blog entry about it:

I like 200 degree water, a “perfect teaspoon” of this tea for 8 oz of water, and 4 minutes.

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!
