Financier Friday - Earl Grey

I love Mariage Freres' Earl Grey French Bleu.  It's not as strong as regular Earl Grey.  But it has very nice complex aroma.  Also, it is so beautiful to look at.  I decided to use it for baking.  I ground it to powder and put it into Financiers.  It gave such nice fragrance.  The moment I bit the cake, the sent of Earl Grey revived in my mouth.  So nice.   

The only problem is that I am not sure what to drink with this.  Coffee will be overbearing.  Earl Grey won't be a nice contrast.  Green Tea is a bit too strong.  Light Jasmine tea?  That might be good.  The flowery fragrance will complement the taste of the Earl Grey.
