drank Earl Grey by Nina's Paris
1816 tasting notes

My sample was enough to make about 16 ounces of tea on the first steep. I drank eight ounces of it hot and plain. It was one of the best Earl Grey teas I have tried. I added some simple syrup and put it in the refrigerator to chill.

For my “dessert” tonight, I poured the cold sweet tea into my Zoku slush and shake maker. It. Was. Heavenly. The bergamot in this is so nice that instead of getting a mouthful of cologne (which is how some EG makes me feel) I enjoyed a fruity treat with lots of tea flavor.

My friend who had ordered Earl Grey dropped by and I found out that she has only tried the sample so far, as her order has not yet arrived. She loved her sample though! Of the five samples I just received, two are teas that I already own a tin of and have already reviewed, so I passed them on for her to taste!

Earl Grey lovers, this is a very nice tea with pure, natural tasting bergamot and best of all, a great tea base that isn’t covered up by the flavoring! And it is awesome frozen, so if you make tea pops or tea ice, it is a great summer tea!

I bought two, and I am definitely getting at least one more. There are four of us and we use these every day! I did buy a cheaper slush maker at BJ’s but we really didnt like it. More Zokus!

Last year I got the popsicle maker at a local fair. I use it SO much, and now I want the slow pop maker and the slush maker. So, uhh, thanks? :)

OMG: LOL! You’re welcome? I bought the fast pop maker before our annual beach trip as a surprise. Love the Nutella pops. Mmmmm. Today alone I have made an Earl Grey slush, hubby made a Cheerwine slush, and daughter made a Mountain Dew Whiteout Slush. LOL! We are enjoying them. It is sooooo hot and humid here, and I sit outside and watch the chickens play and then I want something ice cold and refreshing when I come back in!

I’ll get a regular popsicle maker at the dollar store, and I’m pretty sure my mom has a retro version of the Zoku slush maker I can get from her. :) I remember making slushes all the time when I was a kid!

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
