I didn’t know this was possible, but I’ve been too sick to want to drink tea. This goes against all my ideas of what is right and proper! You’re supposed to want tea MORE when you’re sick!
But I finally got to a point where I actually wanted tea this morning, and since I’m working from home, I decided I should make a big pot of some new-to-me tea to celebrate.
Looking through my cupboard, I found my sample packet of Earl Grey de la Creme. Sounds perfect. So I got my water heating up, and opened the packet. Oh yum!! The cream and bergamot smell amazing together. Like a slightly sour orange dreamsicle. YUM!
The packet reccomended sugar and milk, and as I’ve said – I tend to like my tea sweet. So I went ahead and poured two little cups. One with a little splenda and half and half, and the other plain. Plain was nice. A little weaker than I expected, but had a hint of natural sweetness and some floral overtones.
Then I had my milk/sugar cuppa. Can anyone else hear anything over the cacophony of birds singing hallijuia? I know I can’t. N to the O to the M to the OMG – that’s just good. The vanilla and the cirtus are great together. I like this tea. My goodness, I like this tea.
This will be a definite re-order.
