White tea – straight & flavored

Currently Sipping: Harney & Sons’ Winter White Earl Grey

Everybody knows that I love tea. I especially love Earl Grey tea – my new favorite tea latte is the London Fog. My absolute favorite version of Earl Grey is Twinings’ Lady Grey, but since I’m out and won’t get more until I trek off to the UK (because I’ve tried the Twinings of USA version and it is not the same), I’ve been trying different variations from different tea shops. I found Harney & Sons’ Winter White Earl Grey sometime last winter and loved it, so I’m drinking it until I can stock up on my usual Lady Grey.

Winter White Earl Grey is also a perfect cup of tea for a lazy day at home. There’s something about any version of Earl Grey that’s just so comforting – maybe it’s the bergamot? Not quite sure what the magic factor is, but I’m glad I always have some version of Earl Grey stocked in my cupboard. (more…)

Currently Sipping: DAVIDsTEA’s Elderflower Spritz

It’s almost the end of Chinese New Year, which means a totally clean slate for this blog. Or at least, a new set of resolutions. Or just one – to actually stick to a posting schedule. And to post according to that schedule – no matter how late in the day it is. Which is what this post is!

Anyway, at the end of a long day, I love relaxing in my room with a cozy cup of tea and a good book (or Netflix, both work). I love writing this blog because it forces me to finally go through my tea stash – I have so many teas that I had forgotten about all of them… and then I buy new ones! So tonight, when I was rummaging through my tea cabinet, I found an old, still-unopened bag of Elderflower Spritz from DAVIDsTEA’s Spring 2015 collection. But I didn’t just find one…. I found quite a few. I won’t even post a picture of how many I found because it’s slightly embarrassing how many bags of this tea I bought WITHOUT TASTING IT EVER. Yep, that’s right – I’m trying it for the first time tonight.

I’m normally not a huge fan of white teas because they’re a bit too light for me, but I love a good floral tea at night. I also love any drink with elderflower in it, so I’m hoping I’m a huge fan of this tea. Especially with all the bags I found….
