Smoky Earl Grey is not a flavor combination I would have come up with, but the cute tin on this one suckered me in and I don’t regret it a bit! Bergamot is definitely the main note here, with the smokiness just adding a bit of depth and complexity to the blend. It’s a bit assertive if you drink it straight, but with a dash of milk, it’s a wonderfully rich and flavorful morning tea. I’ve found myself reaching for it 5 out of the 7 days since I bought it, so I’d say this purchase was a success!

In general I’d say “don’t judge a tea by its tin”, but it worked out for me this time! :)

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
