Day 6: Earl Grey Tea
Flavor Highlights: I like that this classic favorite is not just tasty but also is a great option for stomach pains or if you’d like to help improve your metabolism! I have a weak stomach so anything to keep me from constantly having to take medicine is a win for me.
I would recommend pairing this drink with a favorite sweet dark chocolate treat of yours and even some pecans for that crunchy texture.
I enjoyed the roasted taste and smell. Earl Grey is a definite go-to when craving a smooth drink that’s also healthy. Whenever I drink this tea, I imagine having a fancy tea party at my desk at work. This is definitely a mood booster as well.
Is it Friday yet? Don’t worry, while we wait, we can try some tea with cake. We have whipped up a recipe for the most delicious Earl Grey Tea cake. Earl grey tea is one of the best teas to bake with and there are countless recipes out there that include the essence of earl grey so we thought we’d create our very own. The flavor pairs well with simple vanilla.
If baking is one of your favorite pastimes or you love seeing that smile on someone’s face after they’ve tried what you’ve baked, then this one is for you. Don’t forget that adding some tea into a recipe can really add another depth of layer to your recipes and everyone will be in love once they taste this cake.

Sip local, brew global! Take a trip around the world with Teasia’s International Series teas without leaving the comfort of your own home. Each tea has been selected for their unique geography and quintessential flavors from the popular British Earl Grey Tea and English Black Tea to the South African Honeybush Tea and Japanese Genmaicha Green Tea. Our Teasia International Series blends together teas from all different continents to give you a taste of what the world has to offer straight from a convenient K-cup.
This series has 3 caffeinated teas and 1 caffeine-free tea:
Genmaicha Green Tea
Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea that is also known as “popcorn tea” due to the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. The roasted rice lends to a rich and nutty aroma that blends perfectly with the fresh flavor of green tea.
Earl Grey Tea
Earl Grey Tea is a timeless classic that first became popular in England. Black tea is flavored with oil of bergamot, adding a sweet and light citrus aroma. The pleasant and fresh finish after each sip makes Earl Grey a perfect afternoon tea.
English Breakfast Tea
English Breakfast Tea is one of the world’s most popular black tea blends recognized by its robust and full-bodied flavor originating from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. We added a twist to this classic by adding Taiwan Black Tea leaves to the traditional blend. Enjoy with a splash of milk for a creamier texture.
Honeybush Tea (Caffeine-Free)
Honeybush Tea is cultivated during the flowering period of the honeybush plant, which is only grown in small areas of South Africa. This naturally caffeine-free tea has a distinctive honey taste and is commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar or on ice!
