Eh… I really have to stop trying these lighter Earl Greys. I love bergmot, so I’m nearly always disappointed in them. This one smelled sharp, which was promising, but it was ultimately indistinguishable to me from all the other baby Earls I’ve tried. It has a slightly bitter taste to the black tea – perhaps I oversteeped it slightly, trying to get it a little stronger. At any rate, it tastes like a weak cup of Earl Grey. No other citrus that I can detect, and it’s a bit harsh somehow. But do keep in mind, that’s just my personal taste – for someone who wants lighter bergmot this might be great!

I’m pretty new to the world of tea! I took up tea drinking to help control my coffee consumption, but it seems that I have just created another sort of monster!

I like strong flavors and bold teas. My favorites types include Scottish Breakfast, Earl Grey, and roasted mate. I have recently discovered a love for dessert teas, and my obsession with mint is ongoing.

I am a professional singer, and I’ve had a habit of drinking peppermint and throat coat teas leading up to any performance. I have too many cats and too many hobbies. I blog about sewing and knitting my own clothes (and, most recently, about tea!)
