While Earl Grey is a tea possessing the delicacy and nuance of flavor to be enjoyed on its own, it's also beautifully accentuated with a slice of lemon and pairs well with citrus or buttery flavored pastries.
To enjoy, pour 6 oz simmering water (18 F preferred) over one teaspoon of tea. Steep 4-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
