This is a strange one.

Whenever I rate Earl Grey teas, I’m always torn because I have a very clear idea of what an Earl Grey tea should be, and if a tea deviates from that too much, I have a difficult time rating it high because it isn’t what I asked for.

If I ask you to draw me a damn circle, draw a circle! I don’t care if you draw me the best triangle in the world—it isn’t a circle!

When I opened the bag, I was impressed! It certainly smelled like bergamot, so I was expecting a pretty traditional Earl Grey flavour which is exactly what I needed to make getting up in the morning a little easier…

…but this tea tastes like…flowers? I’m not sure what flowers, because it doesn’t have a distinct rose taste or anything, it just tastes like flowers! It’s…sort of nice…It’s a light, fresh tea that really is kind of wonderful…

BUT NOT WHAT I WANTED!

To this tea, I added a splash of lemon and a spoonful of sugar.

So, I went back to Dliche Bakery last night to try my first ever cronut – and of course I had to also grab a small pot of tea while I was there too since tea and pastries is just always a winning combo. Earl Grey seemed like a good pairing with the maple flavoured cronut I had selected…

Firstly VariaTEA was right to hype up the cronut; it was AMAZING. Very rich/decadent of course, but the quality of the pastry itself was incredible with these awesome flaky, buttery & deliicous flavour notes. The maple filling? Decadent, creamy and delicious! Plus, just the right amount of chocolate.

The tea, on the other hand, was underwhelming. I didn’t find the bergamot all that strong flavour wise – and the black tea itself didn’t seem to be super nice/high quality. It was a little bitter, and somewhat metallic tasting. So, not my jam.

Still a lovely experience though!

Evol Ving Ness

Temptresses. I found myself making an effort to hunt this cronut treat locally. Fortunately, it is not on the beaten path.

VariaTEA

Evol there are very few places in the world that have it. I haven’t found a cronut in Toronto and even if I did I don’t know if it would compare to this one. We do have cruffins in Toronto which I want to try.

Also another friend went today and got a nutella cronut. She also loved it. It’s just a winner for everyone.

Evol Ving Ness

Apparently, Le Dolci in a stripmall on Dufferin, at Briar Hill Avenue, though I don’t know how it compares.

One day I will visit Montreal again. But even my love of treats is not enough to persuade me to venture forth in their winter season.
