Way back when, I used to be able to buy flavoured Parisian teas like Hediard and Fauchon on a regular basis. Then I moved to a country where they are all but unavailable, and slowly my standards for a fine Earl Grey-type tea started to drop (I was drinking Twinings from the grocery store). Then I happened to find Cream of Earl Grey while I was in Montreal and oh, everything changed. Take note, tea suppliers: using high-quality leaves (not just fannings) really does make a difference. I’m not a huge fan of vanilla in general but it really enhances the flavour of the bergamot in this tea. I can’t get enough of it, and it’s what converted me to DAVIDsTEA.
