Earl Grey Loose: How To Find The Best
by: John Robertson

Finding great loose leaf earl grey is always a challenge. There are many different types of loose earl grey in hundreds of stores. How one to know which tea is is worth buying? How is a tea drinker supposed to find that epic cup that will result in total and complete relaxation? Although it is impossible to answer all of these questions there are a few simple guidelines which can help.

Number one; what quality are the loose earl grey leaves? Black teas are rated according to an orange pekoe scale. The best way to remember this is that the more letters in the name, the higher quality the tea. The scale, from lowest grade to highest grade is fannings/dust, broken orange pekoe ( BOP), orange pekoe (OP), flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP), golden flower orange pekoe (GFOP), and tippy golden flower orange pekoe (TGFOP). The higher the grade of tea the more flavors there will be in the leaves. The more flavor in the leaves the easier it is to taste the delightful part of tea and the more times you can steep a single cup of tea leaves.

Number two; where do the loose leaves come from? There are a few main tea producing regions in the earth and these each have distinct flavors and qualities. When you know where the leaves for a type of tea come from you can better judge how a cup will taste. Darjeeling is one of the most famous types of teas. This is a tea from the north of India, grown in the foot of the Himalayas. This is a very strong tea and it can be liken to a strong earthy smell. This is a very good morning tea. Assam tea is also from India; though this blend is from the eastern side of the nation. This type of tea makes a very strong brew with a rough classic tea taste. This tea is very common in breakfast blends. Ceylon tea comes from Sri-Lanka. This tea is normally strong and without great depth as its flavor is scarified for a strong brew. Ceylon is common in loose earl grey because it goes well with milk and sugar. Kenyan teas come from Kenya. These teas can be likened to Ceylon teas as they are quite strong and usually enjoyed with milk and sugar. Kenyan teas are usually differentiated from Ceylon by a smooth dryness.

Loose Earl Grey tea can be a great experience. The strong flavors and succulent taste provide motivation in the morning and a time to relax. Though the amount of options can be dizzying the experience of a quality cup of loose earl grey tea is worth the trouble.
