My boyfriend selected this tea while we were having afternoon tea. The tea shop has an eclectic mix of vintage items, so my teacup was rounder with fall foliage and his was flatter with delicate flowers. We were given the full pot over a lit warmer. We enjoyed tea snacks of finger sandwiches, scones, and miniature desserts. The tea was a nice compliment as it had a slightly sweet aftertaste. The initial taste was vegetal and earth, but the more we drank, the more full-bodied and floral it became. The lovely golden color was a pretty juxtaposition against the porcelain of the cup. As we drank our tea, we noticed an old black and white photograph of an English woman dressed in traditional Japanese garb hanging above us. It made me think about how we are selecting different art for our tea background, and how this was a nice addition to our moment of tea.

This is my personal favourite Earl Grey rendition.

The cornflower petals and orange zest contribute to a delightful appearance. The aroma promises a full bergamot flavour, which the liquor delivers in company with smooth, rich Yunnan black tea and mellow orange. I have most appreciated this tea with a good novel on a lazy weekend. I imagine anyone fond of Earl Grey would appreciate it, especially given the use of genuine bergamot oil.
