Why are you so popular? classic? and smooth? You know just how to woo the ladies…and gentlemen. Oozing with bergamot flavour. Floral with a citrus kick. A dash of milk, a spoon of honey. Don’t forget to let him cool down before you decide to kiss his lips!
I was never a huge fan of earl grey tea. As a young girl I grew up drinking orange pekoe out of small floral painted tea cups. In University I drank Love Tea #7, a dark chocolate strawberry flavoured black tea. Those are only a few of my (almost possibly earl grey) black tea experiences. Earl grey was something I ordered from Starbucks as a latte, otherwise known as a London Fog. Earl was too typical, too regular. I was working at Davidstea where I could drink any flavour I wanted. I was cool without Earl.
Can you guess what I love to drink every morning now? With a dash of milk and a spoon of honey?
You got it. 2014 was the year Mister Earl Grey and I started a love affair.
Here are my two favourite earl grey blends to drink on the regular.
2. Earl Grey Rooibos from Davidstea. This one is awesome because it is caffeine free! I tend to go on caffeine free detoxes every now and then when I feel as though I’ve been buzzing around a bit too much. Earl Grey Rooibos lets me have that floral earl grey taste without the caffeine and that makes a girl real happy when she just wants a cup of sweet tea in the morning minus the buzz. Yes you can have this one at night too, but I tend to wake up with earl grey syndrome rather than night cap it.
How do you like your Earl Grey?
