drank Earl Grey Blue Lady by MacBeans
102 tasting notes

This is just a delicious tea! I wish I didn’t have to go halfway around the world to get more. I bought a modest amount of this tea on a whim when I went in for a simple breakfast blend while visiting Scotland on holiday and mentioned that I already had about 10 kinds of Earl Grey, my favorite blend. The seller asked if I’d tried a Blue Lady yet and I said no…. and that’s all she wrote – I’m in love! Anyone who I know that travels to Aberdeen will be asked to bring me back more of this tea! (At least it’s light for the luggage…)

It’s slightly more floral than an average Earl Grey, with some lovely light notes that really opens up the flavor. At the same time, you can instantly recognize it’s an Earl Grey.

Most Enjoys:
A strong black tea, preferably from Sri Lanka or India. I tend to steep it a little over to get just a touch of bitterness, which I enjoy.

My Ratings:
100-90: One of my favorites, a tea that stopped me from doing whatever I was doing, to just enjoy its flavor.
89-80: I would buy again, I enjoy, but one that I can have while rushing around or reading or internet browsing – my standard breakfast teas probably fall in this range. I very much enjoy them.
79-70: An good tea. It’s pleasing in some way and I may buy it again but I wouldn’t go out of my way to make sure I have it in stock.
69-60: A tea I enjoyed, but nothing really stood out to me.
59-50: Better than average, but nothing that delighted or pleased me. It was fine.
49-1: Varying degrees of I didn’t enjoy this tea. The lower the rating goes, the more there was at least one element that I actively did not like.
