Taster’s Review:

It’s Earl Grey time!  As most of you are probably aware by now, Earl Grey is one of my very favorite black tea flavors of all time.  And this Earl Grey Black Tea from Uniq Teas is an excellent Earl Grey selection.  The black tea base is smooth and rich tasting, and the bergamot is good and strong.

And since it seems like at least once a week I’m here all giddy over some Earl Grey tea, it might lead one to think that I love ALL Earl Grey teas that I try.  But that isn’t true.  I’ve tried more than a few that have not been up to par.  More often than not, the culprit for a bad Earl Grey is in the bergamot flavoring.  A good quality bergamot oil is essential for a good Earl Grey tea, and I’m tasting a really superb quality bergamot here with this Earl Grey from Uniq Teas.

And it’s also … just a wee bit different from some Earl Grey teas that I’ve tried, too.  This bergamot tastes just a little bit sweeter than the typical bergamot, which tends to be somewhat tangy.  This still has that classic tangy bergamot taste, but, there is a smoother, sweeter tone to this as well.  No … this isn’t an Earl Grey creme, either!  This is just … a really nice, refreshing take on Earl Grey!

And the black tea has a robust character to it, but isn’t overwhelming.  It melds really nicely with the bergamot to create a delightful partnership of flavors that is both rich and flavorful.  A really lovely Earl Grey tea!

Oh … and if you’re still wondering … YES!  Uniq Teas does still do customized blends!  You might recall that the SororiTea Sisters team did our own blends (and you can buy those blends as well as other blends created by Uniq Teas too!)  A custom blend would make an incredible gift for the tea lover in your life … even if that tea lover is you!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
