I wasn’t in the mood for anything challenging this morning, so I grabbed a sachet and made a mindless brew. With that said, I’m absolutely stunned by how much I like this.
Keeping the brew time short mellows out the assam and lets the crisp, lively notes of the bergamot come to the surface. There’s layers of citrus and that quintessential Earl Grey that just lightly coat the mouth with each sip, leaving you warmed up and ready to tackle the endless piles of computer work that accumulated over the holidays. Or, uh, was that just me?
And speaking of computers, just dumped a solid half-cup of this brew onto my laptop. Let’s hope it’s compatible with Windows 10?
