drank Earl Grey by Choice Organic Teas
585 tasting notes

Um, wow. This tea is FABULOUS. The first Earl Grey I ever tried was Tazo’s, and I didn’t find it pleasant at all. I thought it tasted like soap. In fact, I was hesitant to even give Earl Grey another chance at all. This kind, however, is a game-changer. The bergamot has the perfect amount of presence, without overpowering the whole tea. I don’t really taste the lavender, but perhaps it’s there to cut some of the bergamot’s acidity? In any even, my hat goes off to you, Choice! You’ve cured me of my Earl Grey aversion, and I will definitely be drinking this again.

Hello! I love literature, politics, and tea. I work in the Information Technology field and am currently working toward an MA in English.

Favorites: Black, oolong, and rooibos. Blends that are vanilla, chocolate, nutty, or dessert-like are especially appealing to me. I also love ginger, citrus, and lemongrass.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base and be heavy on the cinnamon and light on the nutmeg. Also iffy about mate and herbal teas in general, although chamomile and I are usually on speaking terms.

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.
