drank Lady Grey by Twinings
1817 tasting notes

We’re at the beach for a week, and I don’t have my usual teas, teapots, kettle, etc. I almost brought them but thought I shouldn’t risk my teapots and didn’t want to use up so much room! I settled for buying the Twinings assortment at a grocery store, with a promise to myself that anywhere and everywhere we go to shop I will look for some special .tea.

This Lady Grey isn’t bad! I added a little sugar. It will do in a pinch, until I get home to my favorites!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C
Serendipitea

To really boost the flavour try mixing 8 – 10 drops of Orange Essential Oil into a fresh tin, then resealing for a couple of weeks before drinking .. Lots of my ‘gumboot/plain’ tea drinking visitors comment on how good it is and go on to buy some since they can get it cheap and locally :)

I may try that! These are bags, but I suppose closed in a tin they would still absorb it. It sounds good!

I normally don’t care for Earl Grey teas, but this is one I really enjoy. I’ll definitely have to try Serendipitea’s tip. :)

Bio

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…
