Recent Tasting Notes


Pleasantly surprised by this tea we picked up on a quick trip through Pinehurst, NC recently. The Early Grey was a standout flavor, and the addition of the flavoring made it a nice treat on a 100 degree afternoon.

Lady Bedford’s was a suggested stop, and we arrived to discover a wide selection of loose teas available for purchase or sampling. As a coffee purist, I came to prefer single-origin choices over any number of flavored coffees, as the flavorings were often masking old or inferior beans. I carry that sentiment into my tea drinking adventures, and wouldn’t likely go out of my way very often to buy flavored tea.

That said, this tea is a flavorful Earl Grey with a wonderful aroma. I drank a couple of cups warm, then brewed and chilled a second pot for a full-bodied iced tea.

It’s currently in a drawer while I enjoy something from Western China.

Flavors: Caramel, Earl Grey, Molasses

I’m a fan of single origin unflavored teas. You’ll find that when it comes to Earl grey types, most people either love it or hate it (my boyfriend being among the first group, myself among the 2nd). I have a pet theory that more men love Earl Grey than women, because it reminds them of their mothers, LOL. Of course, that’s probably totally false :)
