From The Jasmine Pearl Tea Merchants

The fresh fruitiness of our medium-bodied Earl Grey is sweet, not soapy. Aromatic and balanced, Earl Grey is excellent both hot or served over ice. Traditionally, Earl Grey is made with black tea as a base – we use Chinese Keemun (Qimen), from the Anhui Province in east-central China, and Ceylon, from the major tea-producing island of Sri Lanka.


Chinese Black Tea, Ceylon Black Tea, Bergamot Essential Oil.

It was The Jasmine Pearl’s eighth anniversary when I went to pick this up. When I first planned the outing with my brother, I didn’t know that. My only mission was to pick up some Earl Grey, which – even with all my teas – I had none of. EVERY one needs an Earl in their cupboard. (Unless you’re allergic to citrus.)

I’ve only ever encountered one or two near-perfect Earl Greys before. My criteria for perfection is: “The more bergamot, the better”. No, not those double-bergamot hackjobs. They’re too much of a good thing. What I mean is a bold citrusy presence without being too astringent. This met that requirement in spades. As I write this feverishly, I’m downing a pot of it. The Ceylon/Keemun base also shines through with floral aplomb.

An excellent Earl Grey. A strong, amazingly beautiful bergamot scent (I never get tired of that scent.) The base is Ceylon and Keemun which offers a strong background of flavor without being too aggressive. It’s smooth and well-rounded. No bitterness and only slightly astringent toward the tail. What astringency there is seems to accentuate the bergamot notes in a positive way.

Bright, citrus-y bergamot. Notes of floral without tasting perfume-ish. The citrus notes linger in the aftertaste. Tangy and invigorating.

A seriously good Earl Grey. Definitely in my top five. I’m not sure which Earl Grey it would displace … nor am I sure I’d want that Earl Grey displaced so just consider the statement to say that this is really good. If you’re an Earl Grey fan, try it.
