Well, I don’t know that I’ll hail this Organic Earl Grey Tea from Delicious Sip as the best I’ve ever had. Then again, I’ve had a LOT of different Earl Grey teas and so there’s quite a bit of competition for that number 1 spot. But I will say this: It IS a really wonderful Earl Grey!
Whenever I’m about to brew a new-to-me Earl Grey tea, the first thing I’ve got to do is smell the dry leaf. Do I smell that bergamot? Yep! I can smell that distinctive bergamot essence, and it’s strong with this blend without being an overwhelming scent. It smells lovely, it smells like bergamot, and it’s a powerful aroma without smelling so strong that I’m worried that it’s been overdone. The brewed tea has a much softer fragrance. The bergamot is still distinctive and I can smell notes of the rich black tea base as well.
The flavor is is divine! The black tea base is a rich, full-flavored black tea. There is a fair amount of astringency to the cup. It’s earthy, strong and has a light undertone of sweetness that complements the tangy bergamot flavor. The bergamot has a tart, citrus-y note to it, with whispers of floral notes that weave their way in and out of the sip.
The sip starts out with a sweet note. As the sip progresses, the rich, robust black tea flavor washes over the palate. Shortly thereafter, I start to pick up on that unmistakable bergamot flavor: exotic and citrus-y, tangy, and just a hint of sweetness. The bergamot lingers into the finish. The finish is dry and I can feel a slight puckering on the inside of my cheeks from the astringency. The aftertaste sort of tingles on the tongue the same way as a tart, citrus drink might tingle.
A very enjoyable Earl Grey. I’m very happy that I got to try it, and if you’re a fan of Earl Grey teas like I am, I’d recommend you trying it as well, you might just find a new favorite to add to your tea collection!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
