An honest cup of tea that I really needed this morning. Milk and raw sugar take this blend over the top IMO.

The smell from my teapot is homemade cinnamon rolls:)
I added raw sugar to really send it completely over the top decadent.
Nice job 52 Teas!

Found 100 grams of this tea today and just could not resist the cute little tin. I thought to myself…get this and try to mix it with something creamy…so here goes!
In an attempt to create my own EG cream, I added one tsp of EG and I tsp of chocolate honeybush to my teapot. 3 minute infusion yields a creamy EG at a fraction of the cost.
The smell from the teapot is of chocolate with a nice backdrop of EG goodness…yum

Maybe it is just me, but this used to taste alot better than it did last night! Fishy is how I would describe ths tea…disappointment…sigh….
Perhaps it was not as fresh as it could have been when I purchased this tea or Perhaps it was my water temp:(

After months of consuming this tea, I hit the ratio of sugar & milk to tea spot on this morning:) (I owe this triumph to the you tube video I watched on making british tea…ah, the power of the internet)
Recording it here for my failing memory!
1 pyramid teabag brewed in my 2 cup Chatsford teapot
3 tsp of milk per cup
1/2 packet of Sugar in the Raw per cup
Delicious, An honest cup of tea!

Your power of suggestion is strong. Now I’m going to have to go drop everything dig in my box of salvaged tornado tea to see if my loose PG tips survived!

The balance of tea to bergamont is spot on. Holds up very well to milk and sugar. Would make a nice breakfast tea. I don’t normally think of EG for breakfast, but this one is bolder and would pair nicely with a hearty breakfast.

drank Kiwi Lime Ginger by Tea Forte

Kiwi Lime Ginger is what I chose to try first. Dry=I can smell fruit and ginger. The ginger is very prominent in the blend. Once the hot water hit the brew basket, I could smell the rooibos:( I am sad to say the rooibos and the ginger overpower this blend to the point that I cannot finish my sample:(
I hope the other samples are better than this one.

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
