First of the Beastly Beverages to try out! Admittedly, I’m not a huge EG fan, especially when it lies in the floral side of blergamot. I’m cool when it’s got something less floral and more orange-like in there, or when something smooths it out. This unfortunately is 100g of floral bergamot though, and while it does mellow somewhat as it cools, it’s just outside my interest or tastes. I could see someone wanting a great EG with zero caffeine however loving this, so I’m keeping my rating off.

1.5 tsp in 12oz.

This is a sample from MissB’s sample sale awhile back. Thank you!

How I do love bergamot, but the berg and rooibos together. Hmmm. A lot of my favorite Earl Grey’s are my favorite b/c of the base + bergamot. Rooibos, as much as I enjoy the cup and the no caffeine thing, it isn’t my favorite base “tea”. This is okay. Not stellar. I doctored it up with a bit of milk and sugar like I do most rooibos drinks. It is a light lemon rooibos. I would much rather have a normal Earl Grey or Lemmon Chiffon, but it will do for tonight.

Today I divided all of my sample sized teas into a decaf basket and a caffeinated basket. I was digging through the decaf basket and found this one. I immediately wanted it. Most days I feel like the early part of the day is the “good tea” part and when I have to switch to decaf, I drink things that I can drink when I really want to be drinking something else.

Seeing a rooibos Earl Grey was exciting! And, I like it. It has an interesting and very strong cedar smell and taste. It reminds me of the smell of a freshly mulched yard, before the mulch has had time to weather. Bergamot is there. And, it’s strong, so that’s good too! I could see me needing more of this soon. Anyone have some to trade? It looks like one that isn’t so popular.

Oh right. Rooibos Earl Grey. Hmm.

Thank you for sharing, MissB. :) Sadly this isn’t for me.

It’s just so… rooibos-y. And woody. And the bergamot makes it so medicinal in a bad way, not a good way. Like cleaner.

Oh well. I’ll add some almond milk to this and drink it. I’m thirsty!

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 15 OZ / 443 ML

You are so funny, OMGsrly: “Oh right. Rooibos Earl grey. Hmm.”

I recall a while back seeing a box of Bigelow Fruit-flavored Green Earl Grey at the store and muttering to myself: “Don’t think so.” ;-)

OMGsrsly: what does your acronym stand for, if I may be so presumptuous?

I don’t mind bergamot in moderation, really! Just not with rooibos. Or honeybush (I’m not sure I even tried that one). And it is Oh My God Seriously. :D

I am someone who will try something time and time again, even if I know I won’t like it. Seaweed for instance. I have tried sushi rolls probably a million times because “you can’t taste the seaweed in this one” and each time I put on a smile and say “not bad” when all I really want to do is spit it out. Well, same goes for tea. If someone is generous enough to share something with me, you can be damn sure I will try it. Such was the case with this particular tea. MissB was kind enough to send a sample my way so despite knowing I don’t typically love EG, I brewed up a cup.

Sipping on it now, it is definitely a cup of EG tea. Now I don’t hate the blerg as much as some others (I am looking at you, Sil) so I will be able to get through this floral/citrusy cup.. but this is certainly not a tea I would want in my cupboard, even if it is named for one of the greatest bromances on TV. Moreover, I quite like the rooibos used here as it is proving to be quite mellow and smooth. Nonetheless, I am grateful to get to try new things and Beastly Beverages is a company that has intrigued me so I am especially happy to taste some of their teas without having to pick up 100g first. Thank you MissB!!!!!

In other news, I have been accepted to another school program for next year!! Granted both progams that have accepted me are at the bottom of my list but they are better than nothing and now I have options. YAY!

My second tasting of the samples from MissB. I have recently discovered rooibos and have decided that I enjoy it. This was a wonderful tea for tonight, almost earthy. I have been happy to find that there are so many different teas to drink that are not caffeinated. I feel that I will be utilizing both caffeinated and un-caffeinated regularly.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Oh, wow! So glad you enjoyed this one. I found it too floral for my tastes (it’s basically an Earl Grey in rooibos form) however, I can see how some would just love it. So glad you’re one who enjoyed!

This was perfect for me last night, I added some honey(don’t know the last time I did that) it was a wonderful happy cup of sweet bergamot. I don’t know if I put more honey than I thought last night or I prepared it differently but it was not the same tonight. Maybe I was not in the mood for it tonight like I thought. Thank you MissB for including this in the mystery pack.

Oh, cool! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed it at least a little bit. From a tiny one-person company in the UK that only sells on Etsy!
