What can I say about this classic, an eponymous favorite? It helped get me through highschool. I wrote to Twinings as a kid when I noticed that the ingredient changed from OIL of bergamot to bergamot FLAVORING. They tried to assure me that it was still a high quality tea, which may be true, but I’m still a curmudgeon! I drink this from teabags now. The string tag advises “steep 3 minutes” and the pouch warns “do not microwave”. But, why?

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

Left-coast reared (on Bigelow’s Constant Comment and Twinings’ Earl Grey) and right-coast educated, I’ve used this moniker (and Email) since the glory days of AOL in the 90’s, reflecting two of my lifelong loves—tea and ‘Trek. Now a midwestern science guy (right down to the Hawaiian shirts), I’m finally broadening the scope of my sippage and getting into all sorts of Assamicas, from mainstream Assam CTCs to Taiwan blacks & TRES varietals, to varied Pu’erhs. With some other stuff tossed in for fun. Love reading other folks’ tasting notes (thank you), I’ve lurked here from time to time and am now adding a few notes of my own to better appreciate the experience. You can keep the rooibos LoL!
