This was one of the samples provided for my Battle of the Earl Greys project, and it made for a fun morning of sharing the kitchen with my husband!

The dry aroma was definitely my favorite part – you can definitely pick out the elements of the traditional Earl Grey flavor profile, with its rich black blend of teas and the spicy punch of bergamot oil. The orange and lemon peels added their own layers to the wonderful smell, although they did not translate as overtly into the steeped tea.

It actually tasted more like a straightforward Earl Grey than a variation blend, and I think I’ll wait until I have some fresh lemon on hand to brew the rest of this up. The cold version had just enough of a citrus kick to make you crave more, and I think an iced cup with some floating lemon would be absolutely delightful!

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!
