This is my new favorite Earl Grey tea. I received a tin of this Earl Grey Crème blend from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company this week. The tin itself is slim and attractive with a tight fitting lid. When I opened the lid, I was immediately met with a heavenly aroma – I found myself opening the tin several times that day just to enjoy the fragrance.
It’s a pretty looking blend of organic tea with oil of bergamot and French vanilla - you can see the pieces of blue cornflower too.
The tea is delicious with just the right amount of bergamot flavor and a hint of vanilla and citrus. I enjoyed it with and without milk.
Check out the well organized Persimmon Tree website and also their interesting blog.
All true tea lovers not only like their tea strong, but like it a little stronger with each year that passes.
