I ordered this tea for myself last week and it arrived yesterday.  I love it.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

I will freely admit that I ordered it solely for the tin.  I mean yes, Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas, but DID YOU SEE THE TIN???

It's official Starfleet-issue Earl Grey tea.  How could I not get this.

The brewing instructions are hilarious.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

The tin was the main reason for the purchase, but the tea inside is a nice bonus.  I think it's Adagio Earl Grey Bravo.  A very strong Earl Grey blend with orange rind and blue cornflowers in addition to the regular black tea and bergamot.  It's powerful but yummy.  (Rather like Jean-Luc.)

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

And, since it's November 23, 2013 and a very special day in the Doctor Who universe, I have been sipping it all day in my Doctor Who mug.  Even though I don't have cable and won't see the 50th anniversary special today, I stand with my fandom.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Pardon me, I think my geek is showing...

Those blue cornflowers look beautiful in there with the black tea!

I just finished harvesting all my herbs... mints and horehound, lemonbalm, etc for winter teas. I'll have to remember to harvest the cornflowers for blending next year! (ps. harvested just in time, we have snow this morning)
