Bah I haven’t written a note on this one yet but have drank it quite a few times..and today is not the day to write a detailed review since I’m at work lol..but let’s just say this is a great EGC with a bit more bergamot in it than Acquired Taste’s other cream offering I have tried. I think the first time I had this was steeped in a pot at my great aunts, with not much attention paid to the time it steeped for as we were visiting, etc, and it was still excellent! A great one for a large pot or just a cup, however today in my travel mug it is a bit perfumey from the bergamot. Nevertheless, this is one of my favorite earl greys and it can stand up to being brewed a lot of ways it seems! Tasty and warming on this cloudy, cooler morning. Finally got some rain last night :) I am still waiting for the t-storms this summer! Not really any good ones yet. Anyways, back to work now, I will write a more detailed note later!

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
