Woke up this morning an hour before the alarm went off due to an unwelcome phone call. Decided to turn the first morning in our new house into something better. So while my husband assembles the dog kennel in the rain, I am making waffles and steeping a cup of this tea. The tea bags smell lovely, almost like an Earl Grey cologne. I will be honost, I bought it because I want to plant my herb garden in tea tins, and the empty ones go for as much on ebay as the full ones do on Amazon, so I figured, hey, why not get some tea out of the deal as well.
The liquor smells like a black tea, and I can just get a hint of the bergamot in the background.
Added some milk and sugar. Quite a tasty cuppa. Not the best Earl Grey I have had, but nowhere near the worst. I don’t mind that I have 29 more pyramid teabags of this to drink in order to use the tin as a planter!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Nice idea about using the tin as a planter! May I steal it? :)

Cute idea!

I stole the idea (saw it on pinterest), so of course. I thought it was a brilliant way to reuse the tin.

Thanks! :) I’ll earmarking my Fortnum & Mason Earl Grey Classic tin for this purpose since it has one of those “paint can” lids, and is really pretty looking:

I am on a quest to try 175 teas in the next 366 days (yay leap year!) and review them all on steepster as well as in my blog. If you would like to help me out by sending a sample or two, send me a message!

My Ratings:
90-100 My Favorites! Keep in cupboard always.
70-89 Pretty Good! Would not mind drinking, would not mind having
40-69 Various levels of drinkable, would not buy again, but if it was given to me, I’d accept it.
20-39 Might be able to choke it down, many shortcomings, trade it away!
1-19 Gross. Pour it down the sink. Flush it. Give it away. Just get rid of it.
