Let's talk about a classic favorite that never goes out of style - Earl Grey tea. Imagine this: a lazy afternoon, your comfiest chair, and a cup of Earl Grey, its citrusy aroma of bergamot mingling in the air like a warm, inviting hug. Earl Grey isn't just a tea; it's an experience, a mood, a tiny escape from the hustle of life.
Now, I'm a bit of a tea fanatic (okay, a huge one!), and I've been on a quest to find the absolute best Earl Grey out there. Let me tell you, not all Earl Greys are created equal! Some are like that friend who's too loud, others are like the one who barely whispers. But then there are those that are just right.
1. Marriage Freres Earl Grey Provence
Talk about a classy affair! This tea is like the Audrey Hepburn of Earl Greys. It's not just bergamot you're getting here; there's a hint of lavender that makes you feel like you're strolling through the lavender fields in Provence. It's elegant, it's aromatic, and it's got that French flair that says, "Oui, I know my tea."
2. Fortnum & Mason Earl Grey
Oh, the Brits do know their tea, don't they? This one's got royal approval, and once you take a sip, you'll know why. It's bold, it's robust, and the bergamot? Pure perfection. It's like a sunny English garden in a cup.
3. Harney & Sons Earl Grey
This is what I call a classic done right. It's got a robust base with a bergamot flavor that's just the right amount of citrusy. It's smooth, balanced, and perfect for those who love their Earl Grey traditional and refined.
4. Stash's Double Bergamot
For the bergamot enthusiasts, this one's a dream. It's Earl Grey on steroids! Twice the bergamot means twice the fun. This tea has an intense flavor and it is the right thing to kickstart your day.
5. Harney's Murder
Don't let the name scare you; this one's a delightful surprise. This tea is a mix of black, oolong, and green teas with a touch of bergamot. The flavor is unique and a bit smoky.
My 2 cents
And for me the winner is... Marriage Freres Earl Grey Provence! It's just enchanting with its bergamot and lavender harmony. But honestly, each of these teas has its own charm. It's all about what tickles your taste buds.🍵✨
