For about the last two weeks, every time I brewed a cup of Earl Grey Excelsior aka The Fierce-est Earl Grey That Ever Earled, I made a mental note that I needed to buy another packet. Today the unthinkable has happened: I have run out completely!
A thorough and frantic rummage through my cupboard thankfully unearthed this sad wee forgotten packet with a single teaspoon left inside.
Perhaps I have an earlier version of this earl grey, as the ingredients only list bergamot and lavender in the blend. The resulting infusion makes for a very mild cup – too mild for my tastes and similar to a bagged earl grey with the smallest hint of lavender. At least I don’t have to wait too long for a proper bergamot fix!
