Earl Grey is a gentleman, dark, smokey and intriguing with his hint of bergamot to add a little spice. He is strong enough to rouse me yet playful on the senses. I find I prefer him with just a smidgin of sugar gently stirred into his dark depths. His wife, Lady Grey, is altogether more flighty with her dashes of orange and lemon, but on high days and holidays she will do, adding a zesty tingle to my faltering morning step. I hear they have a daughter who has been frolicing in the lavender bushes but I wonder if that is like drinking tea in the bath or if it's gentle fragrance envelopes you in a comforting hug like Grandma used to. She has sisters too, Blossom and Jasmine, who I'm sure could lull me into a peaceful afternoon nap, with the sound of children playing in the distance. Perhaps the teaspoon stirring the tea in the pot may then waken me once again from my slumber....
What? where? who? *wipes sleep from eyes*
Wow that was a vivid dream!
Now where's my tea?
I am joining in with Tara's theme of Morning for The Gallery over at Sticky Fingers.
I think that must be the first time the write up has impressed me more than the photo! I love it :)ReplyDelete

I love Earl Grey, but I'm especially partial to the Redbush variety made by Dragonfly teas.ReplyDelete
Before I was pregnant, I hated tea. Then I found that coffee made me nauseous and I suddenly liked our infamous English brew. My son is nearly two now, but I still enjoy tea!
Oh you had me at Earl Grey. Now, blog about Chai Tea Latte and I'll do anything! ;) Fab pic BtW!ReplyDelete
