I was recently at a work conference. On arrival we were greeted by a selection of tea, coffee and cakes. On choosing my earl grey teabag another other candidate behind me was surprised by my selection. He then asked why I had chosen earl grey as it was not a common choice of tea. Our conversation then continued around tea. I explained that earl grey was one of my favourite teas. I loved the bergamot flavour and find it works well as a refreshing black tea as I have my tea without milk due to being dairy free. He was intrigued by this and told me the story of how he discovered earl grey tea. It was a long fascinating conversation. In a nut shell he was given it on a trip to Canada and wasn’t keen. He was there for a while and bought a box of tea and got earl grey by mistake and finished the box. By this time he had developed a love for the tea. I enquirered if he had tried it black with a slice of lemon he hadn’t but was intrigued by this combination. He then asked if I had any recommendations for brands of earl grey to try as I was obviously an avid tea drinker. I discussed a variety of brands of earl grey I had tried and what I thought. He took note and thanked me. I was glad to share my passion about my love for cups of tea that morning. I just wish I had directed him to my blog. I will remember this next time. In the mean time I hope you find my tea reviews helpful C😀.
