I love strawberries and Earl Gray so suffice to say I was happy to find that David’s had a tea that combined both. In a complimentary way that made the flavors harmonize wonderfully as well. The aroma is filled with all the classical charm that one looks for in a good Earl and paints a picture of an old English afternoon tea.
I admit to visualizing the Old English Rose tea set placed on a crisp white tablecloth with this tea served in the delicate tea pot and on one of the plates a tower of buttery scones topped with strawberry compote. The clotted cream for the delicacies placed just within reach all at the same time. It’s that reminiscent of a picture with every sip.
I thank a grandma who stopped in to David’s this morning for the inspiration to have this tea tonight to wind down after a long day. She may have purchased the Cream of Earl Gray but it served to remind me of this one. I think I might’ve even suggested this one to her when she was trying to decide an Earl but I digress. This is one great blend!
