1083 tasting notes

Kitchen clean-out. As far as I know, this Earl Grey isn’t ancient. It doesn’t taste very good, though. Bitter, gets sour when cooled and not enough bergamot for my likes. I’d rather have Bigelow if I’m going for affordable bags.

Flavors: Bergamot, Bitter, Sour, Tea

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML
Mastress Alita

Ugh, I can’t stand Bigelow bagged tea… so saying “I’d rather have Bigelow” makes my brain immediately go, “Just how bad is this tea?!” (For the record, I’d rather have Lipton than Bigelow any day, heh.)

If you’re curious, we have a bag or two left.

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
