drank Crazy Earl by Indie Tea
564 tasting notes

This is an interesting EG. Normally grapefruit isn’t my favorite because it gets bitter, and there is some bitterness to this cup, but the orange and bergamot balance it out and make it sweeter. It’s a nice mix of citrus and goes well with the traditional EG flavor.

I think I would accept a cup of this again, but I’m not sure I would buy it. The bitterness in the middle of the sip really isn’t my thing, although the orange is really done well—I tend not to like orange in my teas because it’s either overwhelming or too weak, but this is just the perfect touch of citrus. A very nice way to wake up this morning!

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
