drank Earl Grey by Rishi Tea
911 tasting notes

Previously when I had this one, I added sugar and half & half. This time I wanted to see how it went straight.

I’m actually a little torn. The bergamot is a bit strong and edges on soapy, but it never quite hits there because there is a spiciness to it that makes it fairly interesting and full-flavored. The tea base is pretty much non-existent here – this is all about the bergamot – but I’m kind of okay with that. The bergamot flavoring is interesting so it doesn’t seem flat.

But there is a note at the end of the sip that throws me off a bit. Sometimes it strikes me as peppery, which is good and interesting, and other times as a bit acrid/burnt/bitter, which is not so great. It’s sort of weird. But even with that weirdness and the strong flavoring, I think I like this one straight better than the Upton Supreme but not as much as the Arbor Teas Earl.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
