A place to talk about tea, and everything we do with it!
Also an excuse for our tea addictions.
Laura posts a review Tuesday's (and does schedule things in advance), Kayla posts a review Friday's (sometimes Thursday's)! We add extra stuff between those times!
In the spirit of the Calgary Comic Expo starting this Thursday... I'm NERDING IT UP with a classic.
CLICK TO PAUSE or it won't. stop.
I also suck at vine
Earl Grey from Davids Tea!
Ingredients: Black tea, cornflower petals, Bergamot oil
(Duh! It's Earl grey. What did you expect?!)
I steeped for 4 minutes because when you take a sniff of the leaves, WOW - Bergamot!
And after you steep it, it's still WOW - Bergamot!
This is your classic Earl Grey... with a punch! The bergamot is incredibly powerful. But it's kind of rekindling my old love of earl grey tea. It could do with some lemon, perhaps... Or a little cream. It's not common for me to drink this without something in it, and the bergamot is just so strong in this one that a little bit of cream would do it some good. But ALWAYS TRY FIRST!
I bought some super powerful vanilla flavoured rooibos to see if I can make my own cream of earl grey with the plain one I have. We shall have to see how that goes.
