My father picked up a tin of this for me when he stumbled upon their store in Soho. Not knowing much about tea, or having much to go on (time or info-wise), he got me this and the Darjeeling. I was much more excited, originally, to try the Darjeeling, but it ended up being this one that stole my heart. My history and opinion of Earl Greys is somewhat complicated, but this one definitely won me over. The aroma is a strong bergamot punch in the face, at first, but then dissolves into the subtle layers of the white tea florals.
The color is light, and the flavor crisp and mild simultaneously. It’s very delicious, and perfect for the many evenings I spent snuggled-up and sipping its warm contents while a blizzard and howling winds raged outside.

“The heaven of modern humanity is indeed shattered in the Cyclopean struggle for wealth and power. The world is groping in the shadow of egotism and vulgarity. Knowledge is bought through a bad conscience, benevolence practised for the sake of utility. The East and West, like two dragons tossed in a sea of ferment, in vain strive to regain the jewel of life…Meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.” – Kakuzo Okakura, “The Book of Tea”

I am happiest at a tea room, or snuggled up at home with a freshly brewed cup.
