Back in the 1800s, when the original Earl Grey was still working parties as a diplomat in China, all pu’erh tea was brought by horses in long caravans from Yunnan Province. It was believed to protect the heart, fight fat and increase longevity. This special-edition blend combines the deep taste of pu’erh with the Earl’s trademark bergamot as well as a hint of sweet white peony tea.

Thank you so much for sending this as part of that swap, ladykittykat. I may have to make this a permanent part of my tea cupboard if every cup is anywhere as wonderful as the two infusions I got from this this morning.

I completely forgot that this was the one that had the pu-erh/white peony base, so I spent most of my usual morning cup going “Hmm, what is that?” The bergmot is so much more delicate in this tea than I’m used to. Very little bitterness in either infusion, but nothing too sweet either. Very smooth and wet if that makes any sense. There wasn’t the same sort of astringency I’m used to even in a weak black tea.

The second infusion was steeped for six minutes, and there was very little difference in taste for me. Very yummy for both cups. Definitely will be thinking about putting this in the regular cupboard. Might have to do a taste testing to decide.

This is one my wife swears by. She adores it! I need to try it, actually, I may just do that today! I’m glad you like it!

I think I’m addicted to Earl Greys. This one is particularly tasty because the pu’erh gives it its own earthy flavour, and the peony tea sweetens and lightens it up. I’m not feeling any of the dry-mouth thing that I had last time. This is the perfect cup of tea for the morning. Tasty, invigorating, not overly fruity or floral. Yum.
