This was a very difficult choice today, as both these teas are strong contenders. In the end, though, there can be only one… that moves forward in the Battle of the Earl Greys!

Read on to see why this tea moved on to victory!

I didn’t even know this tea existed… next time Verdant brings it back, it’s going on the shopping list!

Thank you for the review, wheezybee! We imagined this tea would someday be part of a battle of earl grey teas XD Very fun to watch!

TeaKlutz- this tea is currently available. Check it out!

If you’re interested in picking up a few blends, you may want to wait until this Friday: as part of our bonus week in the Tea Tour Sale, all of our blends will be 25% off ;)

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!
