I haven’t had Earl Grey tea in quite awhile. I’m not sure why, I guess usually when I buy a tea that isn’t green, I go for the splashy, spicy Chai. Well, I’ve been reminded that splashy isn’t always best.
This Earl Grey was nice and smooth and delicious. I love how Earl Grey tea manages to be both floral-y, and citrus-y but not overbearingly so. The first thing I smell is a slight floral-y smell which is very inviting. When I take a sip, it’s the same. I taste the floral notes, and then I get the slight citrus taste. I prefer my Earl Grey with a little sweetener and a splash of plant milk.
Earl Grey reminds me of cozy, rainy days curled up with a good book, and maybe some great conversation. I enjoyed this tea myself on a cool, rainy morning curled up reading my favorite vegan blogs, and my cats curled up against my legs. It was perfect. Clipper tea is fair trade and organic, and it is reasonably priced on their website.
If you’re a fan of Earl Grey tea, you should definitely try this tea.
