Karen here, recently I ran out of my Trader Joe's Earl Grey Tea. I had second and third thoughts about using my very last tea bag, knowing that I live three hours from Trader Joe's, require a passport, a tank of gas, a different kind of money (that is worth currently worth more then the currency in my own country of Canada) but sometimes you just need that really amazing cup of tea.
I posted my woes on Instagram and Facebook (as one does) and was amazed at how many questions, comments and offers to get the tea to me I had. I have some truly wonderful friends.
The first question I got and I got it a few times was. "Earl Grey is Earl Grey, is the Trader Joe's one that much better?" my answer is this Yes, it is that good. It is a bagged tea that has a consistent, rich, full bodied and beautifully balanced flavor. Next question I got is "I thought you only drank loose leaf tea, why do you bother with bagged tea?" Truthfully, yes I do drink mostly loose leaf tea, however the convenience in this individually wrapped tea bag makes it my go to for travel (I even keep it in my purse) and I often make a large mug, travel or otherwise to enjoy on the go. It also looks great in my tea cup, if you don't believe me check out the photo above as I patiently awaited it to steep.
As a tea enthusiast and not a tea snob I can recommend this lovely Earl Grey, check out Trader Joe's in your area and see for yourself how lovely this inexpensive tea really can be.
