How should I describe this Earl Grey? It is strong and malty, like an Assam, but has the subtle taste of lavender underneath the Bergamot overtones. In fact, I found it a little too strong for an Earl Grey, and was only satisfied by the aroma. Earl Grey teas are a signature tea for each company. For this reason, I expect a variety in the flavor from company to company. And perhaps Tazo simply wanted to make this blend stronger than most Earl Greys. Still, I find myself going back to Twinings or Harney & Sons for the best Earl Grey.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
