I was having tea (she was having coffee) with a friend of mine this morning. She just isn’t into tea, even though she has tried a lot of the teas from Vintage Fork. She’s just a coffee lover through and through.
I brought her into the back room where the tea inventory is, to show her the new tea flavours that arrived late last night.
I pulled out the brand new bag of cream of earl grey, I told her how excited people are for this flavour.
I opened it up right there, she got to take the very first smell of the freshly cracked bag. Her eyes lit up and she said, “WOW, that smells incredible, I wasn’t expecting that. I need to try this one”
At this point I’m excited, Am I finally going to get my coffee loving friend onto tea? Is this finally the one to do it?
About 5 minutes later, a cup of cream of earl grey is steeped, and my non tea drinking friend is sipping a cup of black, no additives, cream of earl grey tea and loving it!
She best describes the first smell as surprisingly sweet and creamy, light earl grey. The taste was smooth and creamy with very light bergamot flavour and hints of floral.
And now I have a friend that’s ditched the coffee for the day and moved into the world of tea with me.
