drank Milord's Grey by Kally Tea
1355 tasting notes

Thank you Chuckieroy for this sample. I love Earl Grey and any time I receive any (including variation blends) it puts a huge smile on my face. Like this :D

Enough here for three tea bags by the looks of it so I can brew a teapot this morning of this for me and my husband. He loves when I get the teapot out.

This tea whilst raw is dark brown in colour and amongst it I can spot large whole purple flowers, some dried apple pieces and a few tiny blue cornflower petals. It’s nice to see that each ingredient listed can be seen easily in the tea itself.

Once brewed the tea has become a light almost reddish brown in colour with a sweet and floral finish, smelling very much like your classic Earl Grey.

Side note – I will be having a drop of milk in my tea but no sweetener.

The taste is very pleasing and it was a nice surprise. At first sips it tastes like your average Earl Grey and it bears some strength but then a sweet and fruity apple tang comes into the after taste and it’s finished with a subtle floralness. It really does go well together, better than I thought it would when I read the ingredients.

The more I drink the sweeter it becomes thanks to the apple, so much so that if I added my own sweetener it would be too sweet. The drop of milk has also made this a very smooth and creamy blend which is perfect for me in the morning.

It’s a shame that Kally Tea doesn’t ship to the UK because I would have liked some more of this. :(

I’m 28 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
