I typically have low expectations with Earl Grey because it’s usually boring, needs milk, and tastes like paint thinner. I should probably go in with a more open mind from now on because this one is proof that I’m a biased little ninny.

Detectable bergamot? Check
Detectable creaminess? Double Check
Bergamot doesn’t curdle the creaminess or milk? Check

I poured in some 1% milk and it came out cream. There are layers of creaminess, divided up by citrus tones. I want to own a huge amount of this Earl Grey. Thank you, Jackie T (please tell me where and how I can get more of this)!

You can either order online at www.vermontliberytea.com or I can pick some up and send it to you :-)

I don’t seem to be able to access their website but maybe that’s a temporary glitch. If I still can’t see it in a couple of months I will definitely contact you- I liked this one a lot! :)

Jackie T

I need to make a run there soon for more earl grey anyway, I can pick some up for you!

Fjellrev

Paint thinner, ouch.

Chizakura

Funny how different some people can be. :) Earl Grey is a ‘safe’ tea for me. Even if the tea quality is utter … ly horrid, it’s still drinkable.

CrowKettle

Jackie T, When I get back to an area with more reliable internet I’ll message you about that :)

Paint thinner is probably an unfair exaggeration. There were a couple I tried that were so strongly scented with bergamot they reminded me of wood polish, but that’s just me. XD

Oh my goodness. So last night I tried to make french macarons. Fail. I still wanted some delicious tea cookie treat and I had the ingredients for shortbread cookies.

I got to the part with a tsp of vanilla, opened the cabinet and yelled “NO VANILLA!” because I ran out last weekend and forgot to get more. However…I DID have banana extract. So I tried banana shortbread cookies. To complete the odd cookie, I sandwiched them together with some nutella between. BAM! Banana shortbread nutella cookie sandwiches. THE PERFECT thing to accompany a smooth, strong, simple cup of tea.

With sweet things I tend to want a plainer tea, instead of my regular dessert tea. So the earl grey was the perfect touch. This is also the best earl grey I’ve ever had.

OH! The shortbread cookie recipe:

2 sticks of butter softened (I wrapped them in parchment paper and smooshed them around with my hands on a cutting board, then microwaved for 20 seconds)
1/4 Cup of white sugar
2 Cups of flour
1 tsp of flavor extract

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix the softened butter and sugar until well blended. Add extract and mix. Add flour and blend it all together (I use my hands for this). Grease cookie sheet, roll dough into 1 inch balls and flatten. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool on tray for 10 minutes, move to cooling rack for 30 minutes…then they are ready to make into sandwiches if you want.

one more edit this makes about 2 dozen cookies. The original recipe called for double all this and that was just too much for me.

It’s kind of my goal to try and make french macarons sometime but the prospect is slightly terrifying. I haven’t even mastered a pie crust yet so I don’t want to get ahead of myself, haha

Jackie T

I totally bombed them hahaha, I knew it was a risk when I started but in the end I decided to support a local business and just buy them there. I’ll stick to making shortbread cookies instead.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I love baking! Those cookies sound shortbread cookies sound good! And I love baking pies. I’ve been baking them for years, but only recently felt like I’ve gotten any good at the crust.

OMGsrsly

It’s so weird how everyone has such different luck with macarons. I tried making them, and they came out hollow but otherwise pretty and edible. I want to try making them again, because I’d really like some that aren’t hollow! The shortbreads sound so cool, I might have to try them. :)
