I tried this for the first time today. Before now, I had only had bagged Earl Greys (namely Bigelow, Twinings, and Tazo). I was really pleased by the taste of this Earl. It’s so incredibly smooth and doesn’t need any milk: the creme flavor in the tea does the job nicely, and the vanilla is a great touch. The cornflower makes it a rather pretty sight, and it smells great. I do wish it had just a bit more bergamot flavor, though.

It’s quite nice for bagged, and if you don’t steep for too long, it’s great by itself or with just a little bit of milk.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

There’s a reason why it’s free at hotels, I guess. It’s pretty drinkable if you line your cup with honey, put the hot water directly onto two bags so that it hits as it’s being poured, steep until it’s dark enough, take one out, and put in a good bit of milk. Makeshift Asian milk tea when your resources are low.

Bio

I’m Connie. I’m 20. I’m a second year in college. I’m insane. I’m complex. I like to dance in circles and sing crazy songs that make no sense whatsoever. I like smiling so much that my cheeks get sore. I like talking to my friends about anything and everything that comes to my mind. I also like helping people, although I’m not always good at it. I love people who make me laugh until I cry. I love people who would care to call me when I don’t feel like smiling. I have the strangest laugh. It changes each time, but you can always tell it’s me. I like knowing random things that will never help anyone in life. I like hugs, but I don’t ask or reach out for them unless you’re one of my closest girls. I much prefer when someone hugs me. My tone of voice changes depending on who I’m talking to and my mood. When I get excited I get a bit more high-pitched. I tend to cover up my true thoughts and feelings with randomness and retardedness. I’m overly self-conscious. Function is more than form in my mind. I really am not sure what goes on in my mind. And those are some random facts about me. :]
