5 of 5 Just my cup of tea December 4, 2018
Reviewer: Susan from Guelph, Ontario  
I hemmed and hawed over various different shades of gray before choosing this ink. I wanted something  light enough to distinguish from black but dark enough to be legible. So far I’ve only tried it with an extra fine Lamy nib. It was rather dry and feint on Rhodia paper, so I dug up an old Moleskine notebook, and it’s perfect on the porous paper.

As Michael noted in his review, there is a lavender undertone. The depth of colour is exactly what I wanted.

Because it’s rather dry, this would be a great everyday ink to use on cheaper paper for school or work, if you’re like me and tend to use finer nibs. I look forward to trying it in a bigger nib, because the shading is lovely.

I purchased a sample size of this ink alongside my TWSBI ECO that I purchased a month or two back. To my dismay, they were out of the full bottles, so I bought some Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki. There are many in the community who feel Kon-Peki to be the most beautiful and shading inks you could get away with using in an EDC; however, I just recently loaded up my 1.1 stub ECO with the Earl Grey, and now I'm even more disappointed I was unable to get a full bottle in the Kon-Peki's stead. That's saying something.

This ink is lovely, yet understated-- It is a very reliable ink with lovely shading, it's a nice grey with purple undertones. I sincerely believe it is the ink I want loaded in my 1.1 ECO hereafter. Buy this ink!
