drank Earl Grey Special by Tea Centre
2196 tasting notes

From teacentre.ca in Courtenay, BC.

This Earl Grey is almost too much for me to drink straight. The flavour almost overwhelms.

Occasionally I drink it hot, with lots of cream or milk and a little honey. In the summer I cold steep it overnight and drink it iced. My favourite use for it is actually in an Earl Grey Chocolate Cake. (http://www.shutterbean.com/2012/chocolate-earl-grey-cake/) The floral flavour comes through, and it’s an amazing flavour with the chocolate. Love. I probably won’t purchase this tea again (My mom got me 250g, and I’m not even half way through!), but it is something to consider if you like really floral Earl Greys, or you want to bake with it.

(I’ve also added it to a French macaron recipe, filled with a honey custard. Amazing.)

(I’m eating the cake right now. OM NOM NOM. I added a giant spoonful of cocoa powder because I like my chocolate.)

Iced 8 min or more

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
