This was another great tea today at tea party, again thanks to SimplyJenW!
Just as Earl Grey Supreme by Harney and Sons is the pinnacle of Earl Grey teas for me, so this has become the benchmark for Lady Grey type teas.
Lady Grey by Twinings is the only other one I have had, and I do enjoy it. It really FEELS like a foofy, holdyourpinkyintheair kind of tea. This is the same, but polished and with a rich daddy.
My guest today has not cared for ANY Earl Grey I have served – it just isn’t her thing, and it isn’t just the bergamot because she LOVES Paris. Yet this tea gained her approval today. Her main remark was how citrusy it was, and indeed it is. They do not mention lemon, but I did think I picked up some lemon notes. That may have just been the Ceylon base though, as they really just mention orange and bergamot in the flavors.
I will be in Raleigh again soon, and I will be hitting Williams-Sonoma and putting this in my basket!
Thank you, Jen, for another lovely addition to Wednesday tea party!
