From Shanti Tea

One of our most popular Earl Grey variations, with pleasantly fruity berry notes mingled with an underlying bergamot profile, you’ll find it impossible to put this cup down. The aromas are so enticing, you’ll have at least 3 cups before you finally decide it’s time to get back to work… or you might just take the day off to spend with your new tea-love.

Ingredients: Tea (Camelia Sinensis), orange peel, safflower, natural essences

Had a big pot of this for games & Kelly this afternoon. Played Crazy Eights, a Harry Potter trading card game (oh yes), Lexigo and Crib. FUN. I always forget how much I enjoy games and usually have be dragged into them… what a dummy :P :P

Anyway, this tea is a great tea! Simple and yum.

I’m glad I held off on rating this – I’m enjoying this far more this time around. Actually, with all the berry notes, and the ultra-smoooooth base, this is very comparable to Adagio’s TARDIS Blend! Except maybe smoother. And cheaper to buy/ship.

I love the golden amber liquor. This is a pretty tea, and and it tastes as good as it smells. I could see this becoming a regular.

I wonder if the extra 30s brewing helped subdue the bergamot, or if I was just ‘off’ when I tried it before.

Backlog:

A really good Earl Grey variation. There is a good balance between raspberry and bergamot flavors. The raspberry is very distinct and strong but it doesn’t attempt to overpower the bergamot, which is also distinct.

Really good iced!

(note moved from Raspberry Earl Grey by New Moon Tea Co.)

Hi Steepster! Sorry I haven’t posted a note for a few days, I haven’t been feeling very tea-ish lately.

But I got a lovely order in from New Moon Tea Co. today, so here we are! I ordered their new Spring collection along with a couple of other things, including this tea. The idea of a raspberry Earl just sounds so yummy to me, plus I can never resist their gorgeous packaging…

This has a very strong bergamot flavor, which isn’t my favorite. I find when bergamot is strong, it starts tasting perfumey or chemical to me rather than citrusy, and this is right in that area. The raspberry is nice, definitely a bit candylike, but I like how it combines with the bergamot. The base is… meh. Quite tannic considering I only steeped this for 3 minutes. I remember having the same issue with their Winter Earl though.

The bergamot is a bit strong for me, but I bet this would make a wonderful London Fog… I find that the bergamot teas I enjoy drinking aren’t usually strong enough for a latte, as the level of bergamot is generally lighter.

But aside from all that, I’m a bit concerned that this looks to be exactly the same tea as Shanti Tea’s Raspberry Earl Grey (and Bee’s Soulteez). I was under the impression that New Moon blends all of their own teas, but the ingredient list is exactly the same, and the tea looks the same as well. Hmm… Now I’m going to be wondering which of their other teas are purchased from a wholesale company…
