Tea of the Week: Teapigs Darjeeling Earl Grey

photo 2 (2)

If you watched my Bath Time Essentials video then you would have seen that I tried out the Teapigs Darjeeling Earl Grey tea. This tea is the perfect earl grey and it was wonderful to drink while relaxing in a luxurious bath. I normally enjoy Earl Grey in the mornings with my breakfast and this little cup of Teapigs Earl Grey sets the bar very high when comparing it to other teas. Most of the Earl Greys you find use a poor quality tea black base from China, which is like palming yourself off as landed gentry when all you own is a Barbour jacket. In this blend of Teapigs they use a Darjeeling tea – the best of the best from the foothills of the Himalayas and the whole Darjeeling leaves are blended with the finest bergamot citrus from the south of Italy and pretty little cornflowers to create something altogether more gentrified.

This little tea temple is one of Teapigs most beautiful temples, you can see the purple cornflowers in the blend and all the other ingredients. I have to say though, this tea does taste really similar to “Higher Living” Earl Grey tea, which is also imported from Britain. I usually get a mixed box of their “Best of Britain” tea and that contains four different teas and earl grey is one of them. Either way, I’m a huge Earl Grey fan and I love the exotic, floral tones of the Teapigs Darjeeling tea. If you’d like to try this Teapigs tea then you can enter my Teapigs Sample Giveaway before the competition ends tomorrow or you can purchase this Darjeeling Earl Grey tea on the Teapigs website here.
