A rare second day off in a row, so I’m considering this a do-over from yesterday. Woke up pretty sleepy, and exactly in the mood for some kind of earl grey. This was the first one I grabbed and I thought, “Eh, why not?”
This is my first earl grey cream. I really didn’t know what to expect, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting to like the combination of cream with bergamot. But I took one sniff of this tea and went, “Whoa!” Turns out I really, really like the combination of sweet with citrus. The tea tastes a little milder than it smells, but it’s still really enjoyable. It’s reminding me of something I’ve smelled or tasted years and years ago, some pleasant association… I can’t put my finger on it. Kind of perfume-y (which I actually like in my teas.) Is this the best earl grey cream out there, I don’t know. But this is one flavor that’s definitely going to become a fixture in my cupboard!
Thanks Nicole for the sample!
