I agree with many of the other reviews here – it isn’t the most subtle Earl Grey, nor is it the best quality, but it was one of my first loves, and “tastes like home.”
I used to keep a tin of it and a slotted spoon in my locker at school, and it was a reward at the end of the day. There is a singular flavour to it that I’m in the mood for sometimes, and the finer Earl Greys don’t have the same effect.

In my school yearbook, I was voted “Most Likely to move to the U.K. and live off croissants and Earl Grey Tea.” My tea tastes have changed, and I prefer scones these days, but although they meant it in jest, they were right about me.

An avid tea drinker since my mid-teens, tea has come to represent many things – comfort, relaxation, contemplative time, reward, nourishment – and is infused with many good memories.

My grandma used to meet me on Thursday afternoons after school to take me for a cup of tea at our favourite shop, where I’d also be able to choose a bag of my favourite loose leaf. She always encouraged me to try new varieties, and little by little, my tastes expanded and matured somewhat.

My favourites are Darjeeling and Keemun, although my daily teas tend to be more robust; Ceylon, Yunnan and Assam.

My early favourites were English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Blackcurrant, so although I’m not overly fond of them now, I do enjoy the flavours from time to time for the nostalgic value.

Otherwise, I was not into flavoured teas until one fateful night when a certain young woman I’d just met joined me for tea at an all-night café in New York, and we discovered Dammann Frères’ Jardin Bleu, which has been as high favourite since. So although very happy with discovering the natural flavours of teas, I’ve enjoyed tasting the many flavoured teas of Dammann Frères over the past decade.

I look forward to learning more here, and hearing about other tea enthusiast’s favourites.
