From The Teaguy

For those wonderful folk out there who have a penchant for smooth, black, robust tea, sprinkled with Italian bergamot, then our version of Lord Grey’s famous tea will make you salivate. The “select” simply means that the black estate teas are organic, single origin, TGFOP (tippy golden flowery orange pekoe) and not unidentifiable crumbs.

This was the last of the samples from The Teaguy that I got around to trying. Of the bunch, I found it to be the best. It should be noted, however, that I am still a huge sucker for a good, straight-ahead Earl Grey, so it should come as no surprise that I was more taken with this blend than the others I received.

I prepared this tea in the Western style. I steeped 1 teaspoon of loose leaf material in approximately 8 ounces of 194 F water for 4 minutes. I neither rinsed the leaf material nor attempted any additional infusions.

Prior to infusion, the dry leaf material emitted a strong bergamot aroma. After infusion, the bergamot aroma was still heavy and strong, though I could also detect some subtle scents of toast, cream, and malt. In the mouth, the tea liquor offered strong bergamot notes on the entry that were chased by subtler malt, toast, caramel, cream, and orange zest impressions. The finish was dominated by a lingering orange zest impression and a suddenly rejuvenated bergamot note.

As Earl Grey blends go, this one was pretty basic and did not offer any surprises, but it was also a ridiculously aromatic, flavorful, and drinkable blend that was just heavy enough on the bergamot oil to avoid coming off as unbalanced. Truly good Earl Greys seem to be getting harder and harder to come by, so with that in mind, there is no way I could refrain from giving this one a high score. If you are an Earl Grey freak, make a point of checking this one out sometime.

Definitely one of the best Earl Grey I’ve ever had: it tastes fresh and natural. As with all good black teas you can drink it plain or with sweetener. I would actually recommend not adding anything to this one, to enjoy the more delicate and subtle flavour!

This is no wussy Earl Grey, the bergmont t is strong here yet balanced by the smooth malty black tea it’s with. This tea is floral and citrus, heady aroma and refreshing. Of the three teas from the generous samples sent to me (and I have several more to go), this was my fav thusfar. Re steeps well Gongu, I thought I was pushing the leaves at 6 steeps, but there was still good flavor.

Received a very generous sample from The TeaGuy – Thanks!!

The bergamot is strong with this one!

Very strong bergamot scent in the bag and the leaves have a slightly oily sheen to them.

I over-brewed it a little because I was looking for a specific mug (Tervis mug with cats), didn’t set a timer, and wasn’t paying attention while digging in a cabinet.
I skipped the no sugar/sugar only/milk steps and went straight to sugar & milk because of the over-brewing and it still turned out tasty!

Great for when I want a strong earl grey without any vanilla/cream buffer.

Brewed in a gravity infuser.

The highlight of the teas I tried from the Tea Guy, this is a really nice earl grey. Strong, real bergamont flavor, no “natural flavorings” b.s., and a good quality tea base that takes the background. Fruity and citrusy with a bit of malt, good with or without milk.

Thanks for the samples Tea Guy, I enjoyed trying them!

This EG is strong in the bergamot. Not a subtle blend but pretty tasty! I like my berg on the strong side though, so be wary if you don’t. ;) Thanks for the chance to try, The Teaguy!
