Some very good friends of mine living in Horsens hosted an afternoon tea Friday after work, which was a perfect start to my Easter vacation. Earl Grey was THE ingredient as we were drinking only Earl Grey tea as well as eaten some great tasting tea time treat, where Earl Grey was playing an important part as flavouring ingredients inside the actual food. Below you can find the link to the recipes, which my friends had prepared for this lovely tea table.
It was very interesting to taste how different these five different Earl Grey teas were flavour wise. And somehow we managed to get them line up in the right tasting order :-)

I think I scared the other tea drinks a little bite, when I shared my idea of having afternoon tea having focus on FLOWERS. Some of the participating tea drinkers still remember these meringue with lavender and orange blooms.
