I have always loved tea. To anyone who does not, I say, “You have not tried good tea”. I am excited to do a Golden Moon Tea, loose leaf Earl Grey tea review today. There is a huge difference in taste between a poor quality tea and a high quality tea. The quality and taste are determined my the part of the plant they use to make the tea. The grade of the leaves and the number of blossoms and more really can enhance the taste and scent of the tea experience.
Golden Moon Tea Review Of Loose Leaf Earl Grey
I tried the Tippy Earl Grey Tea in a 4 oz. tin. Now don’t be intimidated by loose leaf. It is very simple to measure a teaspoon of tea into your or pot or teapot! Upon opening the can I could see that the tea was good quality- nice long leaves and lots of flowers. I compared it some some lesser value Earl Grey I had on hand and the difference visually was evident. The Golden Moon Tea was darker and larger pieces. The lesser quality was lighter and flakier, smaller pieces, (kind of like the not so desirable cereal at the bottom of the box). The flavor difference was even more contrasting.
Golden Moon Earl Grey Tea has the familiar dark, rich flavor you expect from an Earl Grey but it is also smooth and wonderful aromatically. You can really taste and smell the floral lavender and citrusy bergamont and it really balances nicely the little kick that Earl Grey has. I was very pleased with my loose leaf Earl Grey tea review experience and now I want to try other varieties of Golden Moon too!
Why loose leaf tea?
I drink a couple of cups of tea a day in the winter to help keep me warm. One day I was preparing my tea and I read on the box, “Because these natural fiber tea bags don’t need strings, tags, staples, or individual wrappers, we’re able to save more than 3.5 million pounds of wast from entering landfills every year.” Wow, I thought, that is great but it would be even better if I used tea without the bag. So I have started purchasing only loose leaf tea.
I was sorely disappointed by the selection of loose leaf tea at my store. Then I discovered Golden Moon Tea online. They have a great selection of loose leaf teas, teaware, and tea gifts. They have a lot of exotic flavors I would like to try next like Golden Pear and Coconut Pouchong. I decided to start with a tea I am familiar with for comparison’s sake.
All of thee Golden Moon loose leaf tea selections are sold as tea with no pesticides, no GMOs, no chemically treated teabags and no “natural” or artificial flavors. We are talking tea in its natural state as close as possible to plucking a tea leaf from a bush to make tea with. They source teas only from farms that are dedicated to growing teas the proper way with NO pesticides, chemical fertilizers or genetically modified crops.
Golden Moon did provide me with the loose leaf Earl Grey tea in exchange for my candid opinions. I did not receive monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
