Sipdown down theme from a previous month: An Earl Grey tea

I forget how much I like earl grey blends. It’s probably because I have accumulated more tea than is manageable for one person that it isn’t as much of a priority anymore. Looking at some of the past 2022 sipdown prompts, I think there is another earl grey blend that would apply for “tea that makes you happy” theme. It just reminds me when I was first getting into tea as a young teen and it felt both “sophisticated” and tasty. My household was full of coffee drinkers so it felt special to be able to enjoy something they didn’t know a lot of about.

Preparation: Western
Tasting Note: I would say that this is slightly creamy in mouthfeel more than taste. It still has the slight astringency of a bergamot flavored tea. I don’t think it is the best earl grey but it is certainly not bad. I am not getting a lot of jasmine since the bergamot and black tea is stronger.

Flavors: Cream, Earl Grey

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
