345 tasting notes

Rounding out my Earl Grey Fest this afternoon, I thought I’d brew this one to compare with the cream earl greys. There’s definitely a difference – the bergamot flavour is quite strong and citrusy without anything else to balance it out. Like the others, I like this one a bit better with milk added. It’s pretty much just an uncomplicated middle-of-the-road earl grey, though I have to say that when comparing with the other two (before the milk), the base tea in this just tasted a little… flat. It’s possible it’s actually a bit stale, because this tea has definitely been in my cupboard for a while.

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
