Time for Tea Please?
Tea for me is a drink that can be drank at any time of tea depending on mood and what time of day it is for me depends on what type of tea o will choose and thanks to The Duffy Tea Company I’m able to try London Fog Creamy Earl Grey. As you all know I’m a massive fan of an Earl Grey tea but what makes this one different is that it’s caffeine free.

London Fog Creamy Earl Grey
For this blend The Duffy Tea Company uses: Rooibos 91% , Lavender Blossoms, Vanilla Pieces 3%, Natural Flavours and Jasmine Blossoms. As soon as you open the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed with the distinct smells of rooibos and the lavender. It is very hard to detect the vanilla and jasmine within the blend at this point.
Let’s get brewing!
Whilst the tea is brewing the aroma is almost the opposite to its dry state where the vanilla is now the main aroma. With the slightly under lying floral notes of the jasmine and the lavender and for once the Rooibos isn’t the main smell which tends to be the case with tea blends which have it in.
The brewed liquid is of a brownie red in colouring.
Let’s get sipping!
First sip is just BeauTEAful. It’s not like any other tea I’ve tasted before. It has all the magic of an earl grey without sort of being one. As this tea is caffeine free instead of using the black tea normally an earl grey would this blend used Rooibos. Therefore you get the distinct Rooibos flavour. However through the use of the lavender , vanilla, and jasmine the flavour just screams earl grey.
I also love the strength of the lavender it’s super punchy yet instantly calming too. With the use of the vanilla the tea is perfectly sweet so need to add anything.
This blend is perfect hot or cold and is lovely refreshing. With being caffeine free this blend is perfect for any time of day especially if just need a moment of a calm it was almost like it has magic powers with its soothing qualities.
Happy Sipping 😀☕️
