Ohhhhhh yeah. I have no other words, so it seems appropriate to leave you with this delightful ode that my best friend wrote for me:

An Ode To Bergamot
Oh bergamot, the one the true
So many things I owe to you
The mighty zing you give to tea
Enlivens something within me
Like crack or coke or maybe hoes
You make me smile from top to toes
And just like crack we can’t give up
That swish of joy within in my cup
If you were to be a man
I’d stalk you as much as I can
I’d marry you and bear your child
And in the bedroom be so wild
Oh bergamot don’t ever change
Don’t wear Ed Hardy and start a “band”
Because dear friend my love for you
Is so old fashioned, fair and true

‘Don’t wear Ed Hardy and start a “band”’ Love it!

Hee! I have to drink an Earl today – and recite your ode as I sip!!!

Miss Sweet

Haha glad y’all like it, my friend has a natural talent for writing odes :D

I love it! I’d marry Lapsang Souchong and have a child. Maybe this is a new concept in mating. I also wouldn’t mind marrying a nebbiolo vineyard.

Nice fresh 250gm tin (that’s a little over half a pound) ..

Greedily opened it up and took a big indulgent sniff woah that’s fragrant!

Brewed a nice strong pot, a little milk, a little sugar, a new book on my iPad – ahhh now this is the life!

A tea that truly deserves it’s rating 3 ratings of 100 – even though the overall one is 84?!

I tried Twinings earl grey without milk and loved it, seeing all the reviews of excelsior on here I bought a bag and tried it without milk, I was not a fan, so this tea sat in my cupboard unloved for a months until I had a guest over who liked earl grey and couldn’t resist any tea with excelsior in the name (this was his logic, and in hindsight it was flawless).

I made a cup for each of us, with milk and sugar, it blew my mind.
I have been drinking this tea twice daily since, having gone through nearly 2 bags (100 grams each) and just bought a new tin today.

This is now my daily stock tea, I have a supply at work and home, and have dedicated tea ware for this lovely brew.

I use boiling water and let it steep for at least 5 minutes, although I sometimes let it get closer to 6 and never have problems with bitterness thanks to the power of milk, the only problem I have is a bad habit of adding far too much milk.
