This is a really tasty variation on the classic Earl Grey. :) No big surprises here, it tastes like black tea, bergamot, and grapefruit. To me the grapefruit flavour smells pink and sweet, and it blends nicely with the overall citrus character of the bergamot. I haven’t tried it with sugar or milk yet (citrus + milk seems a bit weird to me… but then again, creamcicles), but lots of people have had luck with various additions so I might have to try that next. Thank you Steepster, for providing recommendations to make my tea-choosing a little easier. ;)

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
