drank Earl Grey by Good Earth Teas
75 tasting notes

Picked up a packet of Good Earth Earl Grey from a store’s tea basket, and I don’t think I’ll try this one again. While I love Earl Grey, this particular blend is quite citrusy and is overtaken by the bergamot. I always drink my Earl with milk, which usually smoothes out overzealous peppery tastes. This still felt astringent and strong, even for a normal steep. I would suggest a light steep to determine taste, with an additional steep if you like some face-puckering Earl Grey taste. Then again, Good Earth is noted for having very bold flavours, no?

Designer, photographer, gardener, and rabid locavore. Tea? I’ll have mine with milk and sugar, please. :)

I adore the silly ostentation of ordering tea in a restaurant. Coffee? Yeah, you get a mug and a saucer of cream packets. Tea? Oh, let us break out the wooden tea box, and get you a tiny little platter with a teapot and a mug and all the accoutrements…

If you are into swapping tea, I’m always happy to ship a sample of my cupboard in exchange for new and interesting teas!
