Tea of the Week - Cream Earl Grey

Ok everyone time to enter (leave a comment with your email addy) for a 4 ounce bag of Cream Earl Grey this week! We want to thank Heidi for requesting it. I actually love all our earl grey blends and will be taking this one home this weekend. It will be a nice break from painting the house foundation! :)

Earl Grey is world reknown as a classic English tea – probably as famous as Tower Bridge or Big Ben, and if you are fan of Earl Grey and have not tried this, you are in for a treat. Cream Earl Grey has a taste that is smooth with vanilla overtones, which stand out above the premium bergamot flavor – the signature taste of Earl Grey. This is a tea that would complement a meal or any aristocratic occasion for that matter! One has to think that Charles Grey (1764-1845) would have approved of this delicacy. Contrary to popular belief, Earl Grey is not a kind of tea at all. It's actually plain black tea, infused with the citrus flavour of bergamot (similar to orange blossoms). This gives a bright, tart and refreshing tea that is unlike other black teas.

I hope everyone has a lovely Mothers Day weekend! I will be working on painting the foundation and putting in some flowers. I'm thinking petunias and pansies this year. Are you planting something special this year?

Of all the "British" favored teas, Earl Grey is my favorite. Who ever came up with the idea of adding Bergamot to tea is a genius!

I think that the cream Earl Grey
does not have a real strong Bergamont flavor as the reg. Earl Grey
