Now for something completely spectacular: our very own Girlie Grey blend. It’s a medium-bodied black loose leaf Assam tea with pretty rose buds and slivers of dried lemon pieces.Girlie Grey is a delicious dance of flavours with a decadent vanilla sweetness contrasted with a zesty citrus taste. It’s both a visual and gastronomic extravaganza…a boudoir in a cup!

I tried this Girlie Grey Black Tea from Jeeves & Jericho once a couple of years ago and after trying it that one time, I knew I had to try some more. Thanks to an online tea friend, I have that opportunity!
This is wonderful! It’s a delightful twist on the classic Earl Grey. The black tea base is an Assam tea and it’s rich and malty. I like the strength of this base, it’s bold and solid without being too aggressive. It’s not bitter or overly astringent. It has a light sweetness to it that interacts well with the notes of vanilla – creating a sweet, creamy, almost caramel-y sort of taste.
The tangy bergamot is softened by the vanilla and there is just a hint of tartness to this from the lemon. The rose adds a soft floral note that accentuates the natural floral tones to the bergamot in a pleasing way. It all comes together nicely.
Two thumbs up for this one!
