Shall we ask the Earl?


So, I’ve never claimed to be the authority when it comes to tea, and up until recently I was plain SHOCKING at making it myself – I don’t know how I would get it so very wrong every time, but I did.

In fact, I never really enjoyed tea until I found myself gulping down a lovely warm cup each morning during my time in the UK. After all tea is a right of passage for Aussie’s living in England, without it you’re just a cold, soggy little Australian sipping on an iced coffee, fighting against the key to happiness the British had discovered in tea.

Normally my favourites are the generic English Brekkie and a nice Ginger and Lemon on the odd occasion.

The other day I had read that Earl Grey helps your brain when it comes to studying and with all my end of session assessments, my mentalisms need all the help they can get.

I have seen Earl Grey used in so many other creations; in cocktails, creme brulee, panna cotta, macaroons, ice cream, cakes, scented candles, essential oils, perfume, the list goes on . . .

But my question is . . . how the hell are you meant to drink it?

With milk and sugar?
With a slice of Lemon?
Standing on your head?

I turned to the oracle (Google) and found a combination of both standard and incredibly strange possibilities. None of which I could decide on.

So . . . I just poured boiling water into my mug and drank it black – living on the edge, I know!

The refreshing part was, I enjoyed it immensely. YAY WIN
And . . . My mentalisms are having a party 🙂 DOUBLE WIN

So what is your favourite tea? Send me a comment, expand my tea horizons

  1. Have you tried French Earl Grey before? Earl Grey is quite strong, Lady Grey (my second favourite) milder and French Earl Grey (my ultimate favourite) a more sophisticated cousin. Try it out if you have the chance – if you like Earl Grey you’re very likely to like it 🙂
