drank Lavender Earl Grey by Tea District
2201 tasting notes

Steeped for 4 minutes this time, the scent of this tea is strongly citrus and jasmine with an underlying layer of lavender. The citrus and jasmine combine together to form a bright, sharp aroma that smells like it should be tart. The taste ratchets that down a bit, and it’s well balanced with the lavender. This one ends up a somewhat floral/perfumed citrus-fruity tea, and it’s a great combination. The bergamot has a strong flavor without being very astringent, and the jasmine brings out the sweetness in the lavender so it’s not too herby. I think I have to bump my rating up even higher because I’m really loving this tea!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
