It’s that time again: TEA TIME!!! Today I’m going with a classic: Earl Grey.
The dry leaves bring back memories of Paris when my friend, Juanita, and I stayed with a French family for a week before going off to the Cannes Film Festival for the first time. Beautiful, luscious earl grey!
The family we stayed with drank this tea out of bowls instead of cups! At the time, we thought it was a French thing. We came to learn it wasn’t, which just led us to believe we had stayed with one weird French family! Now I think they were probably just fine lovers of good tea.
But I digress while impatiently waiting for the tea to cool. The brewed tea’s aroma is heaven! It tastes sweeter than expected, which is a pro for me. I find Twining’s Earl Grey to be a little strong for my tastes.
This tea goes great with a little honey. Just a little though, or it overpowers the core flavor of what makes this tea distinctly Earl Grey.
Simply put: it’s perfect! It’s exactly what I wanted and expected, and I can’t help but be enveloped with memories of a summer exploring Paris with one of my best friends.
