BlueBird Tea Co Advent Calendar of Tea – Day 14

advent_calendar_of_tea__1

Hello tea friends.

Please forgive this post; my head is not in a good place as a family pet died this morning. My parents dog Jake passed away after a few days of being unwell. He was 17 years old and was actually my dog for the first year of his life before going to my nan; who passed away and ended up going to my parents. See, it’s a long story but he’s always been with family and we are very sad to see him go. I’m going to review this tea but bare with me as I’m just don’t feel like it. But I know I should.

So what is behind door 14?…

Day 14 – Earl Grey Creme

Ingredients: Ceylon black tea, vanilla, cornflowers, bergamot oil.

Steeping Parameters: 1 teabag, boiling water, 3-4 minutes with a splash of soy milk.

Once steeped the tea has a soft bergamot scent.

The first few sips reveal a light but subtly sweet vanilla tone mixed with malt from the black tea base and a slight after taste of bergamot and a slight bitterness.

It’s a very light tea and I was hoping it would be stronger, I love a strong Earl Grey; but alas this is more for the weaker drinkers.

I feel it’s more of a vanilla tea than an Earl Grey as the bergamot is the third thing I can taste.

Find out what is in store tomorrow for door number 15.

Happy Steeping!
