Taylors of Harrogate - Christmas Earl Grey

Date Rated: February 2006

Ingredients: Tea blended with oil of bergamot, lemon, orange and spices.

Tea format: Bags with no strings.

Where to get it: Globetrends was kind enough to send this tea to me. You can view information about Taylors of Harrogate's teas here and you can order their teas from the Baltimore Coffee & Tea Co.

Recommended Preparation: Steep bag for 5 minutes. (10 oz. cup)

Comments: This is an odd combination of flavors. It brews a strong, smooth cup, and goes nicely with spiced pastries such as pumpkin bread. I do want to mention that Taylors packages their tea bags in my least favorite manner - loose in a thin cardboard box. (Think Celestial Seasonings, without the freshness bag.) They really require better storage once you've opened the package.
