1918 Tasting Notes
My newest “haul along to work & drink in the office tea” is this fellow. I thought it would be a good fit, as an Earl is a nice, basic blend that I can work while drinking, without falling into little rapturous sighs. That sort of thing is frowned upon in the workplace.
And I made a good choice! Its got an almost candied bergamot smell in leaf form, but brewes up to a pretty standard Earl, perhaps a touch mellower than the un-cream version. I don’t particularly find this “creamy”, but nor did I find it bitter or unpleasant or tasting like soap. All good things.
So, its gonna be a good work tea! I can tell.
Golly I love this tea. I had a morning with enough time to brew a pot, instead of just a mug, and this is what I chose.
Its just perfect. It speaks to me in every possible flavor way. Its fabulous any time of day. I m, truly happy with this blend.
My pot is getting low. In no time at all I shall be done with it, and I’m resolved not to buy more until I’ve sipped down a lot more teas, and when the air gets cold again. That’s when I like it best.
And that has killed off this blend! Huzzah!
Well, that’s not entirely fair. It was a perfectly decent little blend, but vanilla is my favorite flavor, so I tend to want the very best out of it.
This was only just ok, fading into meh when I ran out of leaf. It was best overleafed.
I shall not be buying more of this, in future, but it was harmless to try.
You know, this blend does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a decent cup of tea!
I really enjoyed with my breakfast this morning, but I imagine it really shining as an afternoon cuppa with a splash of milk and some hearty biscuits. Oooh, yes, that sounds really, really nice, actually. I can feel the drool already beginning.
This is rich without turning heavy, and not at all bitter. Yes, I’d say this fit the bill today.
