I thought for a moment that I had done Earl Grey tea already, and it turns out that I have, but the loose leaf, full strength version. Today I found a box of Decaffeinated Earl Grey, and got on with boiling the kettle, anticipating my cup of tea-with-milk. Opened the fridge to find there IS no milk there. Hmmm, what to do, what to do.
Found a little thing of lemon juice and thought I'd heard of having earl grey with lemon, so I squeezed some in.
So now I'm trying it with proper lemon...wow. That's some zest. It's got a tang to it that Earl Grey has never had in my memory before!
This morning I went out to distribute leaflets with others from my church. It was wet, cold, and grey. A perfect day to drink Earl Grey....and I drink the lemon in it as a mark of hope that there may yet be a slice of sunshine to go with this dark, damp, wet day.
