The way tea should taste.

In the name of Allah; the Merciful; the Compassionate - بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you - السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته



I love drinking tea especially earl grey tea. Earl grey tea is a tea with bergamot flavour. Eight years ago, I meet with this sister. Everytime I came to her house she served me with earl grey tea. She said her husband got it at auction. It has a wooden packaging. But I forgot its brand. That was my first introduction to earl grey. At that time I only drink tea for socializing.

I became addicted to caffeine soon after that. I drink tea (Dilmah, Lipton and/or Twinings) with full cream milk 3 to 5 times a day. I drink tea at breakfast, morning tea, after lunch, afternoon tea and after dinner. I am so addicted to tea I can't do anything without it. I drink more tea in winter to keep me warm, because I like the feeling of holding a warm mug.

When I was into natural stuff, four years ago, I reduced my tea intake to 2 to 3 cups a day. I even drink caffeine free organic tea like Nature's Cuppa Organic Ceylon Tea. I use skim milk instead of full cream milk. I put a drop of bergamot essential oil so my caffeine free organic tea taste like earl gray, because I could not find it in the shop. Bergamot essential oil is refreshing, uplifting and can be relaxing. It also has antiseptic properties.

But guess what? Yesterday when I went shopping I found a caffeine free earl gray tea at Woolworth. Woohooo! I am so grateful for Nature's Cuppa Organic Earl Grey Tea. I love it. I love the taste of its tea combined with pure oil from the peel of organic Bergamot. Masha Allah this is exactly the way tea should taste like.
