September's Tea of the Month: Victorian Earl Grey Tea
Hello my lovelies,
I recently have been sipping on some delicious tea - Simpson & Vail's Victorian Earl Grey Tea. It was gifted to me by one of my Youtube followers, and I must say that it's quite a delicious tea. Although I've heard of Earl Grey teas, I'd never tasted any before. This particular tea is a rich blend of black tea, rose petals, lavender, rosemary, and a high quality bergamot oil. According to the company, it's a perfect tea to pair with pastries.
Because this is a black tea, boiling temp waters are to be used. To save time on busy mornings (i.e. all of them) I place the loose tea in my one-cup coffee maker. I just take the K-cup component out and used the other filtered section. Works like a charm!
I know some prefer to drink their teas as-is, but me...I have to add a little sweetener. To me, it brings out the flavors of the tea. To each his own. :-)
Is it just me or when I think of cups of tea, my mind immediately goes to My Fair Lady where Eliza repeats, "Cup, cup, cup, cup, of, of, of, of"? I love that musical!
You know I have to share my Tea of the Month video. :-)
