My fiance was running out of Earl Grey and he picked up a tin of this to share with me since he thought I would like a loose leaf Earl and he knows that I like Twinings tea.

The tea was not as astringent in the loose leaf version as it is in the bagged version. It brewed up a lighter amber color as well. It was still a delicious Earl with the bergamot shining through, but not replacing the flavor of the black tea.

I had most of my cup with milk for a smooth drink to have with my bacon and eggs this morning. It was yummy and I think I might be spoiled for my Earl Greys now. I want them all to be loose leaf. He gave me two big tablespoons of dry tea so it will last me a couple of days before I pester him for more.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
