Today we went to the Talking Teacup as part of my birthday celebration, and I had this tea! I don’t know where it is from, as the shop rebranded all of their teas as their own, but my guess? SpecialTeas! It seemed like many of the teas there either had exact names of SpecialTeas teas and Harney & Sons teas…and I think this was a SpecialTeas. The photo on the SpecialTeas site also looks exactly like the leaves, blue flowers, and off white petal looking things of the loose tea.
Anyway – wherever it is from – it is delicious. It is my first Earl Grey Creme and I lo-o-o-oved it! That touch of vanilla in the Earl Grey was wonderful. It took the edge off the bergamot in the most delicious way. It was so perfect with my “high tea” meal of scones with currant jelly and Devonshire cream, corn chowder, a variety of tea sandwiches, and vanilla cake with buttercream, a brownie and a cookie for dessert!
I liked it so much that I picked up some of the rebranded stuff they were selling in their own 4oz packages. I can’t wait to make some more at work tomorrow!
