I recently rediscovered Earl Grey, thanks to a sampler box my best friend gifted me for Christmas. Something about Earl Grey with milk and sugar just makes me happy in the mornings!
I had a little packet of David’s Cream of Earl Grey sitting in my tea cupboard, and decided to have some at work this morning. Dry, the leaves smell creamy and there’s a lot of floral (though, thankfully not as much as in the China Rose Petal tea!). Steeped, it retains that bakery-like scent, even after the addition of milk and sugar. Tastewise, this tea is only lightly floral with a thick, smooth feel to it.
I can’t wait to order more of this!
