Battling the Summer Heat with Ice Cream and Tiesta Tea

The summer heat in Texas is so unbearable that everyone should stock several pints of ice cream in the fridge. While shopping for ice cream, I was distracted by these colorful Tiesta Teas in the bulk aisle. I've never heard of them before so I bagged a few flavors to try.  I actually love drinking hot tea after eating vast quantities of ice cream. Something about the warmth of tea and the coolness of ice cream blends incredibly well together.

Milk Tea's Favorite Cookie: Earl Grey from Fortnum and Mason

I very rarely take milk with my tea. My favorite sencha just doesn't go well with milk. And matcha can go well with milk but I don't normally dilute the flavors of my matcha with milk. But a lot of people love to pair milk and tea. Tea with a splash of milk and biscuits just sounds so proper! So, sometimes I do take milk. But when I do, it has to be Darjeeling, Assam, or Earl Grey.
