Tea #44 from the Here’s Hoping TTB
I’m really dragging today, so I thought I would start my day off with a favorite. I absolutely love Earl Grey Cream, there is something about it that is really comforting to me. It’s what I turn to when the days are rainy and cold, or when I’ve had a bad day (in this case a several bad days.) I’m excited to try one from a company I haven’t ordered from yet.
The dry leaf of this tea smells pleasantly of vanilla, as tired as I am today I need a little pick-me-up, so I decided to stand there sniffing for a little while, just enjoying the scent. I love the way vanilla smells, it always manages to bring a smile to my face. I was really impressed with this tea once it steeped up, the balance between the bergamot and vanilla is perfect. It’s almost like someone blended up this tea with my tastes in mind. I love a strong Earl Grey and this one had nice brisk notes from the bergamot which were slightly tempered by the sweetness from the vanilla. This tea may have just become my new favorite earl grey cream, I’ll definitely have to place an order with Zen Tea as soon as I have some extra space for more tea.
