Earl Grey De La Creme from Steeped Tea. . . . .

I love Earl Grey. His wife, Lady Grey, was my first foray into teas I really loved, and I am grateful to the two of them. They’re like super-old friends. So when I got this Earl Grey de la Crème, I was excited to take it for a spin. But not right away. I needed to wait for that Perfect Moment when I needed a lift Now it’s a Monday morning and pouring, so boom. Tea time. Let’s DANCE, Mr. Grey. This tea is, as promised, very creamy. VERY creamy. There is also a little bit of the bergamot still Read More

Shades of Earl Grey / Let It Snow from For Tea’s Sake. . . . .

I have said it before and I will say it again…Earl Greys are just not my favorite. I don’t love citrus teas and Earl Grey is all about the citrus. Cream of Earl Greys I can get behind a little bit more given the vanilla/cream elements but I still am not a lover. To me they just seem too brisk and sharp. However, the idea of a London Fog always appealed to me. For those who are not sure what I am talking about, a London Fog is an Earl Grey tea latte with a splash of added vanilla. Simple Read More

Earl Blue from 52Teas

I usually imagine earl grey tea with a little bit of a bite, the kind of proper tea that staunch old ladies sip from fine china teacups in British dramas. Once my mother sent me to an old-timey etiquette class led by a strict old woman. The tea we drank from teacups had a bite, black and tart, and a squeeze of lemon on top made my mouth pucker.   It was more palatable by the second cup with milk and sugar cubes but I always associate a bit of bite with that first cup of earl grey. Earl Blue Read More

Starlight and Crime Scenes from Adagio Teas. . .A Sherlock Inspired Brew

Who didn’t love the last Sherlock season? So good! I loved each episode and can’t wait for the next season. . .if there is a next season. Sherlock is one of those shows that my stepsons even enjoy. We actually love this show so much that we (and I really should say I) decided to name our dog Benedict, after Benedict Cumberbatch-who plays Sherlock in the series. The show is clever and cunning, always keeps you wondering what is coming next. So it goes without saying that when I saw that there were several Sherlock inspired teas offered in the Read More

The Picture of Earl Grey from Novel Teas. . . . . .

I may not be the best person to review this tea as I don’t read piles and piles of books like some people do. I do, however, appreciate the literary connection with this tea. The tea at hand is The Picture of Earl Grey™ from Novel Teas which features their WILDE’S ROSY EARL GREY Blend. To be honest I had to do a double take with this one. I really and truly thought I was drinking a heavily flavored ROSE Earl Grey Black Tea but I was mistaken. It seems The Picture of Earl Grey™ from Novel Teas is actually Read More
