Since it's finally summer (as much as Britain can be) I felt it was a perfect time of year to reach for Lu Lin's 'Posh Earl Grey' loose-leaf tea, that i'd saved for myself. Well posh suits me just fine, so I was happy to see what it was made of! As I always say, it's not an ego if you can back it up!

Arrrrrh, gorgeous rich tea aroma that excites the senses while making you feel as though you're wrapped in a blanket watching a sunset. Where have you been all my life!! I loved how much the tea leaves and the orange flowers opened up into swirls making up this rich amber-coloured brew.
I found it medium bodied from the ceylon flavour coming through, yet complex with high notes that could have come from the Keemun leaves. I had this straight up and couldn't imagine ruining it with milk. Why bother when it has a soft texture with no bitterness? There's some orchid flavours and a little tang from the orange and bergamot, which makes it so suited to summer.
I'd say this is as refreshing as it gets if you like drinking hot tea on a warm day. It would taste lovely with a nice light sponge cake, or a posh afternoon tea if you were going all out. But don't be put off by thinking this is a tea for girls - men can be posh too!
With its lasting aftertaste that leaves you feeling nourished and comfortable, this Posh Earl Grey make you feel perfectly centred and happy to take a well-deserved break. Where's the teapot..?!
