I suspect that I looked like a kid on christmas morning when I pulled this out of my Fire Sale box from Rachel. I knew it would be good stuff, but I was expecting samples…. not, you know, several practically full bags of awesome discontinued/unavailable teas. That’s right, I have a whole bag of this! Which is nice, because it’s so good it makes me cry a little to think about drinking the last of it.
The bf had a sip from my cup and described this as “earl grey with a slice of cheesecake melted in.” It’s just…. perfection. The earl grey is very strong, pretty heavy on the bergamot actually, and with a hint of lemon as well. First you get the bold, super-strong earl grey, then there’s the creamy, sweet cheesecake. There’s no crust element, it’s more like cheescake filling. But for me that’s the best part!
EDIT: I resteeped this twice last night: the second steep was even cheescakey-er than the first, and the third held up well too!
