Taster’s Review:

This Posh Earl Grey is the first tea that I’ve tried from Lu-Lin Teas … and this is a company I’ve been excited to try for months now!  I heard about them on Facebook, I think, and I’ve been in contact with a representative of the company, Hannah, about possibly sampling some of their products for a while, but because they’re in the UK, they wanted to wait until they were able to expand their shipping to the United States.

Well, they’re available here now … as well as in the UK, and this Posh Earl Grey is an excellent version of my classic favorite.  It tastes smoother than a typical Earl Grey; it is not quite as pungent … the bergamot tastes sweeter and maybe a little less tangy than what I’ve become used to.  And I like this difference.  Oh sure, I still love that classic taste of bergamot, but I love it when I find something a little different too.

The black tea tastes … silky.  It has a smooth flavor from start to finish.  There is very little astringency and no bitterness whatsoever.  It isn’t what I’d call a robust tasting tea, but, what it lacks in boldness, it makes up for with its even tone … I like that it is just so smooth!

The bergamot is nicely balanced, not overwhelming but also not too subtle.  It has a very pleasing citrus-y taste, tasting bright and slightly acidic, but mostly, what I taste is a really lovely sweetness from the bergamot.  It is a very pleasing, well-rounded cup.

If this tea is any indication of the quality and flavor of teas I can expect from this company, I’d say I’m in for a wonderful experience with Lu-Lin Teas!
