Yesterday, I was in desperate need of a soothing yet robust tea. The safe thing to do, to ensure meeting both requirements, would be to drink my old faithful Winter White Earl Grey by Harney and Sons. Yet, I felt somewhat adventurous and opted with great anticipation to try something new. Imagine my excitement when I discovered the Earl Grey Creme Flavored Black Tea in my tea stash that I recently received from Jessica, author of Authori+ea.
Thanks again Authori+ea!
Composition: Traditional blend of Earl Grey black tea with bergamot oil, blue cornflowers, vanilla pieces and cream flavoring (dairy-free).
Dry Visual: A mixture of black, medium quality, broken, tea leaves complimented by contrasting blue cornflowers.
Dry Aroma: Heavenly! This tea has a wonderful sweet smell of dessert quality. I could not help opening the package and smelling over and over and over again!
Brewing Time: Recommended brewing time is 2 – 3 minutes. I brewed for 4 minutes. I think I forgot that I was not brewing my normal Winter White Earl Grey.
