This is me…in Joe Muggs…with a cup of hot tea. And if you live around here, this sight probably looks familiar because I’m there looking through books and magazines and sipping tea very often.
The tea I was enjoying on this evening was The Republic of Tea’s Earl Greyer black tea, the ingredients of which are simply “fine black tea and natural bergamot oil”. The bergamot oil was very noticeable and very tasty, as it always is. This brand of Earl Grey contains more bergamot oil than other varieties, according to The Republic of Tea. I’m a big, big fan of Earl Grey tea – Earl Grey is actually the first hot tea I can remember drinking – so any variation of this tea is always a treat for me. The Earl Greyer has a very strong taste, though not as spicy or peppery as some brands; it also has a delicious aroma.
I’m going to be completely honest and say that my favorite Earl Grey variety is still the Twinings brand, but I enjoyed the Republic’s Earl Grey tea a lot and I’m sure I’ll be ordering it again. You just can’t flip through magazines and judge books by their (front and back) covers without some form of hot tea there for moral support. 🙂
