So the other night, chatting with friends online, the subject of tea comes up (as usual). More specifically, Earl Grey. Even more specifically, London Fogs. I held out for about three minutes before caving and going to make myself one. Only problem was, I couldn’t find any Earl Grey. Yes, in our huge tea stash, I had to hunt for my favourite tea. Because I’d taken them all to work. I eventually found some Earl’s Garden, a fruity Earl blend, and fixed the London Fog (two parts tea, one part steamy and frothy soy milk, two pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup). But it left me with a craving that Peach Earl, Raspberry Earl, and Earl’s Garden just couldn’t satisfy. SO here I am at work, with my modest work stash at my fingertips, and I crack the seal on this Royal Earl from Sahara Teas. I haven’t tried it before – I think I got it from a friend of a friend who doesn’t drink looseleaf or something. My hopes were not high, given that it was an Unknown, but dayum. This good tea. The cirtusy bergamot smell didn’t fade after steeping, and the flavour is rich and equally citrusy. It’s a little dry, as I find most Earls are, but delicious.
