13 Tasting Notes
Rainy day outside and I am on steep nr 4 for this tea. Very mellow pumpkin green more oolong taste type. A sweet flavor lingerst at the last sip that makes you reach for the next cup, and the next, and the next. Not one hint of bitterness. Now I don’t know what to do with those meh GABA green teas that I have in my cupboard after trying this one…This is to be re-ordered.
This is the only Earl Grey I own now. Along the years, as my inquest for good crisp clean, and not bitter earl grey had stopped to the first mediocre earl grey I would find, I discovered this brand walking by the aisle of a farmer’s shop. I was out of tea since we just moved back to Europe and my teas were all in the moving truck, I decided to give this a try. It was a huge hit, but now it has become a memory-associated souvenir picture: A tired person after relocating across the ocean finds her perfect tea. She stops everything that day, sits down and grabs a book, and enjoys a french rainy spring day.
This tea never leaves me unsatisfied. When you open the tin is like you open a box of an Eau de parfum. Typical Parisian I would say from the way they designed it. The first infusion was 3 min, not my cup of tea…threw it away and thought the tin would make a fine tea storage. Decided to give it one more chance, infused for 4 min, and to my surprise, DELICIOUS! It was like eating apples sprinkled with orange juice on top. I drank it 30 min ago and I still have the wonderful taste in my mouth. Very smooth, very enjoyable, and with zero bitterness.
