To me, Earl Grey is the father figure of all tea. A solid dude that you can rely on at all times.
Always there to support you, loving you and hugging you when you need to. Keeping things simple and comforting cause you know exactly what to expect.
This Earl is a very good illustration of that. Not all Earl Greys are created equally, they often are unbalanced, bergamot kicking a little too strong.
The balance on this one is perfection! The bergamot is done just right in a non bitter way, leaving plenty of room for the excellent assam base to shine through. It’s creamy without any vanilla flavouring addition.
This is my go to tea of the morning when there’s no time for fuss, knowing I won’t have to compromise on the quality.
Thank you Teajo for giving me a good Papa Earl to rely on :-)
