drank Electric Earl Grey by Tealish
871 tasting notes

I just spent like 15 minutes typing this tasting note, then my damn iPad decides to refresh itself. Like WTF. Lost note in steepster space.

So from memory:
In my previous tasting note I was complaining on having no good teas at work. So on my break, I went over to the pharmacy next door to find some pharmacy tea. I was expecting to see only Lipton type tea, but I came across this and a bunch of Tea Forte flavours. I don’t really like TeaForte’s black base, and I have never tried Tealish before that I can remember, and I love bergamot, so I went for this one. It was a bit of a gamble as the in store sample smelled like nothing.

Upon opening the package there is a strong smell of bergamot. MMmmmm, bergamot!! There are a lot of yellow petals that make it look so pretty.

The black base is very mild, slightly sweet. The bergamot is disappointed not as strong as it smells. It is definitely an Earl Grey though. The flower petals meld everything together and make it nice and smooth. I was kind of waiting for a big punch, the electric part. But nothing happened. No electrocution here, not yet anyway.

Overall it is good, definitely better than the drawer tea.

On a side note, bergamot is not listed in the ingredients but flavouring is. I know it is not bergamot oil, but it is kind of weird they didn’t list bergmot flavouring.

205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Ugh, blasted technology.

What a misleading name. I would have expected a vat of bergamot in it.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
