backlog! from this afternoon. Darn that work getting in the way!
So I’ve had this tea for ages… my friend got me a whole bushel of the stuff and it’s taking forever to finish! Which normally I would not mind except that it seems to be losing potency- It’s been two years, maybe three by now.
and that’s why I don’t blame the tea for the sub-par cup I just had. This rating is for all the cups of Earl Grey rooibos past!
Bergamot is typically wayyyyy to flowery for me(the smell reminds me of lavender, and I hate lavender scent), but somehow this tea manages to make it less overpowering. The sourness I find in red teas balances it out quite nicely.
It goes really nicely with a dash of milk to, but this time I just added some sugar. Next time I’ll add more tea, maybe that will make it stronger.
This isn’t a very complex tea at all but it just reminds me of home, and comfort- perhaps because I’ve had it so long!! my security blanket…
earl grey rooibos
This Rooibos (“roy-boss”) has been flavored with a sweet, and non tannic sent of the bergamot flower, giving it that wonderful Earl Grey taste. South African research on the Rooibos has concluded that seven ounces of rooibos contains the following: Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Copper, Zinc, Magnesium, Fluoride, Manganese and Sodium. It is also renowned for its soothing effect on headaches, disturbed sleeping patterns and digestive problems.
