Earl Grey is world renowned as a classic English tea - probably as famous as Tower Bridge or Big Ben, and if you are fan of Earl Grey and have not tried this, you are in for a treat. Cream Earl Grey has a taste that is smooth with vanilla overtones, which stand out above the premium bergamot flavour - the signature taste of Earl Grey. This is a tea that would complement a meal or any aristocratic occasion for that matter! One has to think that Charles Grey (1764-1845) would have approved of this delicacy.
This tea is sourced from tea plantations that are monitored by the Ethical Tea Partnership, meaning a fairer deal for the growers and workers, and a more environmentally friendly way to produce tea.
Make as for hot, but add extra tea. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
Add milk and sugar to taste.
I was sent a sample of this in my last order, it is delicious, really smooth and creamy excellent to drink without milk, my husband who is normally a regular tea with 2 sugars man tried it and thought it was excellent too, it's like Earl Grey but dare I say it, better! It will definitely be forming part of my next order, Many thanks for the sample as I would probably not have tried it otherwise, having previously had Baroness and Supreme Earl Grey and not really enjoyed them.
