I took a poll on Facebook a few weeks ago asking people about their favourite teas. I got lots of different answers and learned about some new teas that I hadn’t tried before. The responses ranged from Masala Chai to Tulsi Tea to Lemon and Ginger and many more. It seems that each tea appeals to us differently according to our personality, palate and mood. This makes me happy because I always look forward to a my daily cup of tea and I can change it up depending on how I feel. In the fall and winter I seem to be drawn to spicy , warmer teas as natural way to warm up. Summer has me brewing up all kinds of fruity and green iced teas. ( ah summer….) But lately the tea that gets me going in the morning with just enough caffeine to tackle the morning gong show is Earl Grey de la Creme. Yummy on so many levels.
It’s a creamier version of your typical Earl Grey and has some pretty blue flower petals in it too. The trick with this one is that you have to brew it as instructed on the package otherwise it gets a little too bitter. I add a drop of maple syrup and a bit of almond milk to mine and voila! If you are feeling extra fancy you can even froth the almond milk and make a dairy free tea latte. It comes in a black tea and green tea version.
