230 Tasting Notes
This tea will forever be bitter sweet for me. I can see the bottom of the tin as my 11 year relationship comes to an end and I just want to cry sad tears into this tea. It just is not a happy week. I hope that one day soon I will be able to consider this tea a happy after work tea again, just not right now.
That being said it is probably the most soothing latte I have had all day. Side note I am out of milk and I want to cry over that, and I am sure I will find a few more things to cry about before the night is out.
1 microwavable glass jar with a lid
4 0z of 1% milk
1 16oz mug
1.5 tsp Cream of Earl Grey
12oz of hot water
Pour milk into jar, place in microwave (in my micro) set timer to 1:20 minutes and hit start. Steep tea as usual. Take Jar out of microwave screw lid on tightly and shake. Pour over steeped tea including the froth and enjoy.
I will admit that Lucerne Milk (Safeway, Tom Thumb, ect) does not foam as nicely as I would like, but it still makes enough foam for a “Poor Mans London Fog”.
There is enough vanilla in this tea that I did not need to add anymore to it to get that London Fog quality you get at a coffee shop. I will admit that I thoroughly enjoy how sweet the milk gets when it is heated and shaken! Mmmmmm
