drank Earl Grey Cupcake by 52teas
9669 tasting notes

Anne finally put this one in the system so now i can write about it. Everyone likely knows how much i am NOT a fan of the blerg. So 99.99999% of all earl grey type teas are on my list of “don’t go anywhere near…use a 1000 foot pole to serve to others.” I can barely tolerate the smell a lot of the time when other folks in the office drink it.

BUT! I am also always up for trying it at least once because you never know. I’ve actually found a few earl grey type teas that i’ve been ok with in the past. This one i had hopes for because of the vanilla cupcake factor. Turns out, while i am a fan of early grey + vanilla cupcake, it’s not enough for me to actually enjoy drinking this one. The front end of the sips were fantastic, delicious and everything i might want….and then BLERGAMOT! showed up and ruined the party lol

Not rating this one because blergamot and i are not on good terms, but i think that if i did enjoy earl grey’s, this one would be a nice little cup of something slightly different.

Thank you for trying it! It would seem that you and I are on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to bergamot – I am quite fond of it and Earl Grey are what I radiate to when I happen to purchase tea for myself (which really hasn’t happened often since I took over 52Teas). But I do know that there are a lot of people out there that don’t like it – so I get it – and that’s one reason why I’m not making a new Earl Grey-ish type of blend every month or so. I’m glad you enjoyed it before bergamot appeared. :)

the girls regularly send me the most blergiest teas they can find… it’s a bit of a fun time :) I’ll try anything at least once!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
