Tea #32 from Considering a new TTB
I somehow missed this the first time I went through the box, I normally try any Earl Grey teas first since they’re my favorite. This was a pleasant surprise to find, I really need it today. I’m sitting here at the kitchen table writing, admiring the beautiful sunny day and just noticed that it’s snowing… during the last week of March. My husband had the nerve to point out that it is completely possible that we’d have snow in mid-May for my birthday, it has happened before.
I’m putting my foot down right now, there will be no snow in May
This is a nice calming EGC, the flavor is very subtle and unlike the strongly flavored EGs I normally prefer, but I really like having this for a change of pace. I can taste more of the vanilla than I can the bergamot and the floral notes from the rose hang out in the background, barely noticeable over the other flavors. I think it adds more color to the dry leaf, than it does actual flavor. I’ve never ordered from Capital Teas before, but I may have to, if only to try their Cream EG White which makes up part of this blend. I’ve never had an EG White, I can’t think of anyone else off the top of my head that blends such a thing, I am intrigued.
Normally I resteep my teas, but this was so lightly flavored that I don’t think it will resteep well.
