I have always had a love hate relationships with bergamot and earl grey blends. But when I saw Sherl Grey Tea from Geeky Teas, I had to try it. Well because I’m sort of obsessed with Sherlock. I even named my new puppy Benedict after the lead actor of Sherlock.
Sherlock is one of those shows that you watch one episode and you are hooked. Each episode is almost like a mini movie and with our schedule with 4 boys, watching an hour and a half episode a night causes havoc. But this show is captivating and extremely engaging. We binged on all available seasons in just a few weeks. We actually formed family time around the show. But enough about the show, let us chat tea!
Sherl Grey isn’t your typical earl grey blend. The flavors are light and subtle but full of flavor. First whiff of the blend I knew I was in for a treat.
Brewed up with water prepped at 212F and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this blend yielded one of the best earl grey teas I’ve had. The tea tasted fresh and though the bergamot was present, I didn’t feel overwhelmed by that notable flavor. I was able to enjoy the lovely mix of citrus tang, black tea base, a creamy lush texture, and a slight berry twist at the end of every sip. Incredibly enjoyable and one that I will be ordering more of to enjoy when I’m watching the next season of Sherlock.
This is one of the better tea blends I’ve had from Geeky Teas. Even my husband asked me if we could order more of this one. I can’t wait to try this tea on ice!
