This is the tea that made me realise that I like tea. The first and always the best. When my head was pounding and I barely knew my own name, this is the tea that I summoned up from my brain when my wife asked if I wanted a cuppa. The Earl Grey is earthy and rich, with the vanilla adding just that touch of sweetness that keeps it from being bitter. In fact, I think I am going for another resteep. I drink it black, steep for about three minutes.
