drank Earl Grey by Java Republic
285 tasting notes

At Easter I met with French friends in Soria (Spain) and we stayed the night in the flat they had rented for the week. Whenever I´m with French people over breakfast, they get the box of mixed teabags (a few of each box they have at home, thrown together in one of the boxes they then carry along on holidays) out, and this time, there was a brand I didn´t know yet. They had discovered it during last year´s holidays in Ireland, liked it and afterwards ordered some more online.
This Earl grey is the only black tea of the Java Republic brand they had with them, so I tried it as I like to wake up with a black tea. A decent EG, with strong bergamot flavour and fragrance; the presentation on the other hands is refined, with individual pouches maintaining the hand-stitched bags fresh. Apparently, they call these bags “tea pillows” what I kind of like…

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
