drank Earl grey by Lord Nelson
20 tasting notes

This Earl Grey is my current morning drink and I’m very happy with it. It does the job really well: it’s a nice, well-rounded tea and it’s both refreshing and comforting. I expect it to make me ready for the day and that’s what it does. It’s also pretty cheap (and thus affordable in big quantities when you want to make sure you’re not going to run out of tea) and they sell it at my local supermarket.
Bonus: if you steep it for long enough it turns into an acceptable alternative to English Breakfast. And since it’s cheap you won’t feel bad about wasting a bag of Earl Grey.

Flavors: Astringent, Citrus, Salty

I got into tea-tasting in the summer of 2018 – before that I enjoyed tea without really thinking about it.
I like: Lapsang Souchong, that cheap Earl Grey in the morning, and teas that don’t pretend to be better than they are.
I don’t like: aromas used to hide poor quality, clearly overpriced tea, colonialist aesthetics.

I’m quite fond of a few Dammann Frères blends and I’m obsessed with Fortnum and Mason’s Lapsang.

Hit me up for tea shop recs in Alsace (France)!

My ratings:
100-90: I’m in love and drinking this forever
89-70: very good tea, will gladly drink again
69-50: pretty okay, might drink again
49-30: not convincing, probably won’t drink again
below 30: won’t drink again and do not recommend

Current obsessions: Autumn Tea, Fortnum & Mason
