Day four (?) of the Whittard advent calendar. Only a few days in, and I’ve already lost count. I’m also already behind, but there’s nothing particularly new about that.
This is a white based Earl Grey, and I don’t honestly know whether I’ve ever had one of those before. It’s a slightly strange beast, but it actually works. Who knew? It’s very creamy; lots of vanilla and milkiness here. It’s also quite floral, which is a slight downside for me, but I can overlook it because there are so many other things about this that are good. Like, good good. There’s definitely rose in here, maybe a little jasmine too. My first sip was bergamot heavy, but that seems to have faded as it’s cooled. It’s hard to believe now that it was ever there; I get milk/cream/vanilla and rose, primarily. And I’m enjoying it!
A good start to the day, for once.
