drank Earl Grey by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
49 tasting notes

Finished it off this morning. Not the greatest loose-leaf; I much preferred their English Breakfast. The leaves are cut very fine—many of them were essentially fannings—and the bergamot flavor was inconsistent (strange, since it was made with bergamot oil, not actual bergamot, so it wasn’t as if I hadn’t been scooping enough bergamot). Often it would be too weak or too strong; nothing some milk and sugar didn’t fix, of course. A decent tea overall, but not one that I’d get again.

Hi, there! I’m Mark. I’ve enjoyed tea ever since I was a kid, but only recently (within the past few years) have I really gotten into high quality, loose-leaf tea. Now, all my friends know me as a lover of all kinds of teas, and I’m always happy to share. I try to make tea for people whenever I can.

When I’m not making and drinking tea, I’m usually writing, hiking, building with Lego, or spending time with my wife and kids.

I rarely feel satisfied with giving something a numerical rating, so most of my reviews are listed as simply either “recommended” or “not recommended.” I’m OK with giving ratings to amazing tea and terrible tea, but everything in between just doesn’t seem right, so I usually stay away, and hope that my written reviews will be illuminating enough.

Recently I’ve become a huge fan of Japanese green teas, though a good oolong or pu’er is always welcome.
