drank Earl Grey Darjeeling by Lupicia
36 tasting notes

My first cup of this was yummy, but I had steeped it very lightly and noticed a really strong bergamot odor/flavor. So I made a mental note to steep it even more lightly next time. Then I made the horrible mistake of trying to brew a POT of this, and the bergamot flavor was so strong I almost wanted to throw up. It became known as The Pot That Almost Put Me Off of Earl Grey Forever, and my friends are still trying to put me through Earl Grey rehab because of it. I have renamed this tea “Bergamot Bomb” and hold out hope that, someday, I’ll be able to enjoy normal Earl Grey again…

Flavors: Bergamot

An oolong monster who lives in a remote island chain where it is difficult to obtain loose leaf tea. She used to eschew the beverage, but she now considers herself a devotee of fine leaf water. You can talk to the monster—she doesn’t bite (only slurps).
