The description of this says “very refined”. Yep. It is. It is also remarkably easy and comforting. I keep forgetting about this, it´s one of the cinderellas of my tea collection, and it is so unfair.
Just brewed a cup, and oh my it was so lovely. And because the small cup was just not enough, I did not resist trying the rest of the pot, which had been steeping for 10 minutes or more. And it was still good which is something rather miraculous. For all the chic and elegance of this tea, it´s also so forgiving and right for just about all occasions.
It might spoil me for all other earl greys. And it just might destroy my relationship with Lady Grey.
