“Heaven! Must be missin some tea leaves!”
:clears throat: Let me compose myself a little before I begin.
I recently visited a Persian restaurant that had a little market within that sold Iranian goods. From the description of their teas on the menu, I was more than a little curious to try some tea. Before I ordered my main meal, I perused the market and spotted this beautiful tin of Ceylon tea with bergamot. You know what that means, ladies and gents, don’t you? Why it means Earl Grey, of course. My absolute favorite of all the teas. So soothing. So refreshing. So delicious!
I quickly put it on my table so that it could be added to our bill. When the friendly host saw that I’d purchased a tea, he came to see which one and was happy to tell me the one I’d chosen was his favorite. That had me even more excited to try it!
I got home, opened the foil bag within the tin, and breathed it… heaven.
The tea leaves are nice and large, not ground up like some other loose leaf teas. And the bergamot is nice and heavy, just as I love! I now have this tea every. Single. Day. At least once, and I’m nowhere near ever getting sick of it. Also note, I’m a heavy steeper. I don’t remove the tea at any point (unless it’s one of the stronger black teas because I love it strong.)
Where my bergamot buds at? This tea is for us!
