After teaplz’s tasting note on this today, I knew I had to go home and have a cup :) The taste is a wonderful hint of hazelnut, a touch of chocolate and TEA. What a masterful blend this is. Perfect on this windy cold night (and, errr, really good with umm, brownies).

This’d make a good ice cream!

I agree! I should try it – I have an ice cream maker!! I also think that Earl Grey would make an ice cream that I’d like… and one of the spicy chai or christmas type blends -and – !!! You can really get imaginative!

teaplz

Whee! This one is fairly masterful, I must say. I don’t know if it’s particularly my absolute FAVORITE cup of flavored tea, but if you’re into chocolate and hazelnut, this does a lot of things right.

What is this I hear of earl grey flavoured ice cream!?

We used to have an ice cream maker around here somewhere…

JacquelineM

AJ – here is a starting point:

and have you seen David Lebovitz’s book The Perfect Scoop? There is a green tea ice cream in there that I would look at and see if I wanted to combine the two recipes somehow. And I’d use loose tea (earl grey recipe uses bags).

AJ

Hahah, I was actually just on that blog no more than a few minutes ago. It was the first (or second?) result I received upon googling “earl grey ice cream”. I will have to see if we still have that maker somewhere.

And no, I have not seen that book; I will have to check it out.

AJ – it’s an amazing book! The author has a blog, too, and posts recipes for everything from food to sweets, and he’s funny too :)

Oh wow. Now I have an impossible craving for candy.

Harney & Sons The Store

@jacquelineM: We sell an Earl Grey Supreme Ice Cream here at the shop. With the cold weather it’s been, we could probably send you some! Give us a ring @ 518-789-2121 (ask for Emeric)

Harney & Sons The Store – you’re too kind!!! I could never let you send ice cream in the mail!! But I will take a raincheck – we’re driving to Vermont in April to pick up a hand made guitar for my husband,

and plan to take the looooong way and drive through upstate NY, the Cape. etc and make it a mini holiday/photography expedition. We plan to come to the tea room in Millerton as one of our stops!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
