WHAT WOULD PICARD DRINK?


Being a starship captain is tough work. You have hundreds of lives depending on your leadership, your decisions, and your grace under fire (and under the ever-annoying presence of Q). When you need a moment to collect your thoughts, you don’t do it with a teabag stuffed with the brown dust that is the byproduct of real tea. No, Sir. You drink real, genuine Tea, Earl Grey, Hot.

Star Trek has given their seal of approval for this official blend of Tea, Earl Grey, Hot, just like Jean-Luc Picard would drink. Of course, you don’t have a replicator, so you’ll have to scoop out this blend of premium black tea with bergamot into your favorite looseleaf brewer. Start with water just off the boil for 2-3 minutes and you’ll have the perfect Captain’s tea: fresh, zesty, exhilarating, slightly dry to the nose, with a rounded and balanced orange rind flavor. You’ll be making those tough decisions in no time… or maybe after another cup…

This is a fantastic tea, which I did not expect. I received it as a gift and I find myself reaching for it regularly. A nice strong Earl Grey and the orange notes are great. A reviewer identified the blend as Adagio Earl Grey Bravo, and it looks like a dead ringer for it. I plan to seek this out once my tin is empty to refill it.

How have I not logged this yet? I could have sworn I had.

Well, my fiance brewed it for me today, so I can’t tell you what the temperature was, but this is probably one of my favorite Earl Greys at the moment (and not just because of the tin). There’s these little scraps of lavender and visible bits of bergamot in it.

But it is tasty. The bergamot and lavender have an…… what’s the taste equivalent of audible or visible? presence. The lavender sort of softens the bergamot, but both are definitely there, blending into the tea. It’s very calming.

If this is what Federation issue tastes like, I’d be happy to join!
