It’s peak time, and we were just lucky enough to snag a table by the window. Outside people are bustling about, busily shopping, working, and being human. A moment of calm settles around our table as our waitress brings a tray of sweet scented tea, and a sumptuous slice of cake…
“An exciting classic, big flavoured earl grey tea – hand blended at Suki HQ, our Champion of Champions and one of the best Earl Grey teas around!” [source]
Suki Teas’ Earl Grey Blue Flowers is a delicious full-bodied blend, with light floral notes, and citrus tang. It reminds me of the Red Box tea I sampled earlier this month, but it has a slightly bitter aftertaste that the other did not. Perhaps this tea had been stewed a little too long?
Luckily for me this tea was served alongside a delectable slice of mille-feuille from Patesserie Valerie, which was a sticky sweet of luscious creamy vanilla, with the perfect levelling of flaky pastry. Bliss.
