I have tried a lot of different brands of Earl Grey tea. The bergamot aroma draws me in every time, creating an uplifting experience. This usually translates into an impulse purchase, or if I am lucky, a delightful gift. The taste, however, is largely dependent on the brand. Some are subtle and subdued, while others come on strong and stay that way, which in my opinion, is a good thing.
Rishi Tea’s Earl Grey definitely ranks up there as one of the more flavorful. It’s a great midday pick-me-up for body, mind and spirit. And if you have never visited Rishi’s website, it is well worth a visit. The descriptions alone offer amazing insights into the history and traditions of tea, and demonstrate a passion for providing high quality teas.
A cup of Rishi Earl Grey is amazing on it’s own, or with toast or pastries. But if you are like me and cannot find enough Earl Grey to satisfy for needs, you might want to check out Have Tea Have It Earl Grey cheese….a unique, unexpectedly delicious marriage of two of my favorite things! If only there was a way to add chocolate to the mix and still maintain the excellent flavor combination…it might be my perfect food! 🙂
