For Mothers’ Day Andrew and Little Miss surprised me with a homemade Doctor Who themed card and a whole lot of tea. Pretty much the perfect gift in my mind and encompasses two of my favourite things. The tea gift included a number of selections from Teavana which I’m still working my way through.
The first tea I’ve tried was the classic Earl Grey Creme (EGC) black tea. I love my Earl Grey tea generally and it’s one of the DavidsTea selections I’ve come to enjoy on a regular basis. (Yes, I have a tea addiction…I’m okay with that.) The Teavana Early Grey Creme selection includes vanilla which mellows the dominant flavour of the bergamot. Which I gather is the idea behind EGCs generally, it has the potential to be a subtler version of Earl Grey.
This was decent a cuppa. But I love a strong cup of Earl Grey so EGCs probably aren’t being marketed to me. I did like the subtle flavours and additional depth in this tea, but missed the strength bergamot that is in some Early Grey teas.
On to more tasty teas.
