drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA
12 tasting notes

Toted 16 oz of this along with me to tutoring today after dressing it up with a little milk and the juice of a tiny wedge of lemon. The blend itself is gorgeous and seeing the little blue petals fall out of the bag I’ve left untouched for nearly a year had me wondering how I could have avoided this one for so long.

I really care for bergamot in general, and it’s there with a perfume-y presence right at the nose, both with the dry blend and the lingering scent of the brewed tea. The lemon wedge brings this fragrance through to the taste, and the milk offsets the acidity of the black leaf. The drinking experience, with the dairy factored in, is something of a Strawberry Creme Saver—remember those?

This is definitely one of DAVID’s better blacks, but I think I’d like to sample higher-end earls before purchasing this one again. Any recommendations out there?

Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot, Earl Grey, Perfume, Strawberry

I spend most of my day with books, and tea has become a spectacular way of both beginning, breaking, and ending the day. I also hobby around in the kitchen and a rooftop garden in my spare time.

As for taste, I’m really into well-composed natural herbals with nutty, piny, vegetal, or floral notes as well as bold, complex blacks, including chais. Milky matchas and taros are favorite indulgences, too, but in all honestly, I’m here to learn more about tea and am hoping to make my way into Oolongs and Pu-erhs as I empty out my cupboard. All the same, I hope my logs in general tell a story of palate expansion, discovery, and a fair bit of fun. I’ll try anything once.
