Zen Tea Traders are a unique company out of California that supply their teas in unique ways either metal tin containers or adorable nylon tea bags. I love the wooden Chest Sampler coming in at $55. holding 6 teas.
Today I had the enjoyment to sample the Earl Grey Tahitian Blend. It boasted a lovely medium amber color with the scent of the familiar Earl Grey with a slight fragrant vanilla scent. Boasted as “not your grandmothers Earl Grey” I would have to agree, it’s not typical at all with that little added boost of Tahitian Vanilla. The aftertaste is a mild bitter and the flavors are mild in taste.
If you are looking for a lovely Earl Grey this is another one that you can add to your collection, an Earl Grey yet with a little different twist that makes it just a mild difference from the rest.
Tea just makes you smile!
Till Next Tea!
