Three Brands of Earl Grey Tea in a Mismatched China Cup & Saucer

All the cookies on this saucer are Earl Grey cookies.  I may not like to drink Earl Grey, but I sure like to eat it!

This china cup and saucer are two mismatched pieces. I don’t know how or when I broke their companion piece. I do know I am loath to throw things away. I kept this saucer and teacup so that I could do an art project someday.

Well that someday is now.

I’ve wanted to make a bird feeder out of it for a while.


This is my finished project. Yes, the spoon is glued to the saucer. I love this.

One similar to the bird feeder at this link. Hurray, I am done. Go to this link to see my finished project.

Day 20 (January 30)

Taste test-off between these 3 brands: Tea Forte, Ambance, and Kusmi. May the best tea win.

I drank a cup from each of these three brands: Ambance, Kusmi, and Tea Forte, hot and black. 

  • I don’t know why I have so much of this tea when it has never been a favourite of mine.
  • The Tea Forte is a cute pyramid bag.
  • The Ambance and Tea Forte tasted like I expected. And as I expected, I didn’t care for the taste. See my review from Day 6 (Tea Forte).
  • However, the Kusmi Earl Grey was okay. It is loose leaf. Could that be the difference?
  • So I made myself another cuppa. Still okay. I read somewhere that loose leaf teas tend to be fresher. Could that be why it is okay?

Your Turn . . . Have you ever had 3 different brands of the same tea? Why?
