Day 87: Earl Grey de la Creme (Pearl Fine Teas)

I've been a lifelong lover of tea (and coffee).  I fell in love with tea at a very early age, probably around 4 or 5 (which explains a  There's something so comforting about tea.  It warms you up, soothes your soul, and brings you a sense of calm.  To me, there's nothing better than toasted sourdough bread (or a nice pastry) with an ample cup of tea after a long, hard day at work.

Black tea has always been a favorite of mine, especially Earl Grey tea.  For finer teas, the rich, savory flavor sticks with you even after consumption.  A particular favorite of mine is Earl Grey de la Creme (pictured above) from Pearl Fine Teas.  It's a smooth, luscious twist on a classic black tea.  Earl Grey De La Creme is composed of black tea leaves, oil of Bergamot, and touches of vanilla.  All come together to give this tea its creamy taste, which makes for a delightful, unforgettable drinking experience.  I love it sweetened with a little agave nectar or honey.  Haven't had it with cream yet, but will soon.  Because the tea is so flavorful, I'm sure it's just as lovely by itself.  

I came across Pearl Fine Teas while attending The Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show a few years ago during one of its stops in DC.  Always open to trying new things (especially when tea is involved), I gave them a go and was taken immediately.  I fell in love with the Earl Grey de la Creme, along with the Rooibos Lemon Cream and the Jasmine Yin Hao (green tea).

So for you tea lovers out there please check out Pearl Fine Teas.  I think I'm going to have a cup right now. :)
