For Christmas, C's Nana gave me a David's Tea giftcard. I was SO happy to receive this as I am a tea junkie. I love tea. All kinds of tea!
Lucky me, there is a David's Tea in the mall where I work. So one day before I had to go in, I went and spent it all. Yup - it was burning a hole in my pocket as my dad would say.
I purchased a little single cup teapot (in teal) as well as 2 - 100g tins of tea AND an additional 50g bag of tea.
The first 100g tin I bought is called 'Countess of Seville' and it is DEVINE!
Organic: green tea, orange peel, cornflowers. With orange oil & bergamot oil.
"Did Earl Grey really woo the Countess if Seville with this sweet, romantic, green-tea-and-orange version of the original tea?"
The tea leaves are 'bundled' up, as I like to say. Because once you add your hot water to these - they open up! I was shocked to see what they looked like after they had time to steep!
While dry, the scent is AMAZING! The orange peel really comes through - as well as the bergamot oil. (I love bergamot!)
It says to use a 1 1/2 tsp. (Which I do) and let it steep for 3-4 minutes. Sometimes I forget that I'm making tea and it sits for 10. Either way it's delicious! The coloring of the drink itself is a light 'yellow' - it doesn't get 'dark'
It's light and flavourful yet still has the "Earl Grey" smelly/taste (if that makes any sense) - I sometimes use some organic honey to sweeten but not usually. It's great on it's great on its own. I'll have a cup in the morning and sometimes one before bed.
If you love green tea, I would defiantly recommend this. It's light, flavourful and refreshing!
