drank Double Cream Earl Grey by Teaja
1497 tasting notes

I find it a bit odd that most of Teaja’s teas aren’t on their website. I was told they have a separate blending facility in Olympic Village, and they’re sold through a distribution company (whose name I forget). This is also the name used for the tea festival competition, of which they won two awards this year.

Anyway. This tea… I knew I wouldn’t love it, but the reviews on Yelp and the smell were too good not to try. The staffer knew my reluctance, so she sold me 10g of it… A surprising amount!

It actually smells creamy – is that possible – and floral, blergamot-y. (not a typo). It tastes almost identical to the smell… Cream first, then floral citrus. I could see this being a huge favorite for those EG lovers… I’m just not one of them. Can I send someone here the rest? :)

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Creamy, Floral

Preparation
2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
