Sipdown! Thanks to JennyFur for this tea.
I’m sorry, I just need my earl grey fix for the day. This one called my name because of the creme. and I only make one cup instead of the usual two incase things don’t go as planned. If this is good I may have to go get some from Teavana because this tea is pretty inexpensive (which is a surprise with Teavana).
I steeped this for the recommended 195 (I found this odd because most black teas are at boiling, but I’ll go with it) for 3 minutes. Also, I put about a tablespoon of honey in (I haven’t used honey in a tea in forever, but desperate times call for desperate measures).
Honey. Honey. Oh my, Honey. um…. Honey. And cold. Very cold. hmm…
Finishing off the cup:
Well, all the honey helped my throat. I could get hints of earl grey in there. I don’t know why it was so cold. I won’t rate this as that would be unfair to the tea :(. But it tasted good when I could taste it! Tasted light. I enjoyed that part. Too much honey to finish the cup though… opps.
Overall, I messed up on this one x) The honey helped my throat though! I may get this anyway because its only 5 bucks for two ounces. Or maybe I’ll save a starbucks sample to get one ounce of this. Who knows :p I usually go into Teavana looking to get a cheap tea and seeing something that is over 20 dollars and using my sample on that instead.
