Sipdown (621)!

Finished this one off yesterday morning. It’s a very, very visually stunning Earl Grey. One of the nicest, highest quality tea bases I’ve ever seen used for an Earl Grey, in fact. Taste wise it’s pretty solid; brisk, tannic black tea with notes of malt, red fruit, and honey and a bergamot note that is intense (but not overwhelming/unpleasant) and bold. Really has a strong citrus peel/zest element as well. It pairs very, very nicely with the black tea used…

Really, this is Earl Grey but elevated!

Strong citrus zest explosion on the nose. The leaf is just bursting with the pleasant aroma of orange jam and honey. There’s even some minty freshness present. The leather notes are there but somewhat overpowered by the bergamot. They’re most prominent if the first seconds after hitting the leaves with the hot water. The liquor is a gorgeous deep amber color with rose gold hues. The flavor just goes on and on even after the fourth or fifth infusion.

Since I’m a designer I’m pretty visual. Paper & Tea caught my eye for it’s outstanding branding & after some research that led me to conclude that the brand posses an authentic love & knowledge for tea. I’ve never seen tea leaves this beautiful. As soon as you open the sealed envelope that made it all the way through the Atlantic, the aroma is unbelievable fresh as if just picked & packed: fresh, preticor (the way the earth smells after the rain), citrous & a hint of honey & caramel. Don’t have a point of reference for black teas from Yunnan but I feel it’s a bit less bolder than the regular blacks, but holds a nice character strong enough for a pick me up tea, the bergamot is always present but discretely & the tastes of honey & caramel comes with every zip making it almost a treat. The best thing is that this is one of the few teas I posses that holds 2 brews pretty well. The liquor is amber & gold like a sunset.

Flavors: Bergamot, Caramel, Earth, Honey, Leather
