Big mug of this yesterday with breakfast. I finished up 6 out of 8 night shifts (it was murder) and was determined to stay awake a bit and read with some tea before bed. It’s been a while since I’ve had some earl grey and the bergamot in this was very bright and citrusy – it drowned out the cream notes, despite adding in creamer.

I think I really like the French Earl Grey from the Tea Merchant better, though. It’s aesthetically gorgeous and has the custardy vanilla undertones that I so love. Gah. I am needing to place SO many tea orders…

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec 3 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
