This is an old favorite of mine. I think it’s an Earl Grey that I will never tire of, because of the touch of sweet and creamy vanilla. There is a robust black tea flavor with a citrusy finish. There is a little hint of bitter lemon noticeable initially. The aftertaste is completely sweet and creamy bergamot and vanilla. The tea’s flavor is a little on the weak side but adding milk and sweetener helps. I like that this is a lighter EG, it’s not too heavy on the bergamot. Now that I’ve made this cup and started sipping, it is actually less wonderful than I remembered. Still good, but just not as perfect as I’ve thought in the past. Hmmm, maybe my tastes are changing.
It’s a beautiful day here – the sun is shining and there’s a slight breeze so it’s the perfect temperature outside. Hope everyone enjoys their Tuesday!
