I was so crazy for Fortnum’s Countess Grey that SimplyJenW sent, that I hightailed it over to Williams-Sonoma after work. I knew they carried a selection of their teas, and I had my eye on their Earl Grey Classic. Ran over and bought it (hey, I needed parchment paper, too!)

Oh, I love this tea! It is not only smooth and flavorful, but it gives one a lot of vim and vigor, making it very appropriate for those that like an Earl Grey in the morning! whispers I think I like this the best of all the Earl Greys I’ve tried!!

!!!!

Gotta run – terribly busy – I will try to provide more details the next time I drink this!

GORGEOUS! They are classic but hip, elegant but snazzy!

It must have English Magic in it because I’ve been in the best mood the past two days after drinking it, despite all the craziness going on.

I will definitely have to put this on my list of teas to check out! I love the Earl!

Wow, I will have to get some of their teas soon. I may have even more reason to travel to the city with all the tea, as my son was offered a job there and will decide soon whether to take it. I just might have to visit him often, and how could I not go to Southern Season when I will be sooooo close?

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
