My husband is off work this week to use up his remaining holiday before it gets renewed next month. That means we can have our usual pot of tea this morning which is a ritual that I love. So I opened my cupboard and found this Earl Grey first. It’s a little smoother and tastier than I remembered but not enough for me to change the rating. Still it’s cheap and cheerful.

Today’s agenda? No idea :/

Those days without agenda are the best!!

From the EU TTB

This was my pre-bedtime cup. I have a big interview coming up this week, which I’m already starting to stress about. For some reason, Earl Grey always helps me to calm down. I think it’s the scent of the bergamot, even though bergamot isn’t my favourite thing most of the time. It works, anyway, and that’s all I’m looking for right now. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk.

I quite like this one. The bergamot is a little sharper to taste than I would usually go for, but the milk helps to take that down a little. The black base is smooth and strong, with pleasant citrus notes of its own – maybe a ceylon. It’s not the most unique tea out there, and it’s not the best earl grey I’ve ever tried, but it’s a pretty solid example. I’d keep this one around for evenings when I feel a bit deranged – it certainly helped me to get off to sleep!

Good Luck! Drink lots of calming tea.

Admissions Officer, but not where I currently work. It would be a new, unknown place…plus it’s three grades above my current job. I didn’t actually believe when I applied that I’d be offered an interview, and now I’m a bit scared!
