I read the adorable letter from Uniquity to Lady Grey & knew I must try this tea!
But after waiting for it to steep and smelling the aroma, I thought I might have made a mistake. This isn’t like Earl Grey at all.
I took a tentative sip. Yuck! The citrus overwhelmed everything else and almost made me gag!
I re-read Uniquity’s letter and thought I might have to write its antithesis. But I decided to add a little bit of milk and sugar before completely giving up hope.
What a difference!! Suddenly, this tea was more than stomachable; it was wonderful!
The lemon complements the bergamot nicely, and now I’m truly enjoying my cup of Lady Grey (who I always mistakenly call Lady Earl Grey). She definitely is much sweeter than her husband and quite forgiving.
Thank you, Uniquity, for writing such a persuasive letter that I couldn’t help but try and love Lady Grey. I followed your steeping instructions and with the addition of a little skim milk & Truvia, I’m a convert.
