Yesterday, I went to stock up on M & S’s Winter Spice Tea, only to be confronted by a store stockage deficit. So, I owe my discovery of this delightful, yet gently robust tea to what at first appeared as a lack of good fortune.
I steeped for a solid four minutes, which was enough to ensure a full flavour at a perfect temperature. Upon drinking, I was mesmerised by the addition of citrus, the very note I was seeking in the Winter Spice tea I could not find. The citrus note surprisingly transforms this earl grey base into a surprisingly warm cold weather thirst quencher.
Overall, I’m delighted with this tea and don’t mind admitting to a brief flash of smugness today as I began my third cup.
