Strong bergamot balanced nicely with a creamy bouquet, very nice when Earl Grey is what you crave!

Playing catch up — I get so wrapped up in the moment that I forget to log the experience. I have brewed this up several times and find it to be “OK” — that is pretty good from me, since I am not a huge fan of anything strawberry. It is a nice one to share with friends.

I am not warming up to this tea. Maybe it is user error, steeping too long? Not fragrant, mostly a bitter tonic. Does it require sweetener or cream? Didn’t like it enough to experiment. Maybe I will, on a day when I have time to play around with it.

Is it wrong to brew the just for the bouquet?

So I saved it and iced it later…waste not, want not!

Profile

Bio

I have loved tea since I was a child, this being a gift bestowed upon me by my mother. It all began with her cups of sweetened Constant Comment (sometimes spiked with a bit of Jim Beam, to cure aches and pains) on cold evenings, and over the years I have enjoyed many teas that have made their way to my kitchen from all over the world.

I must admit from the start that am not a tea-snob. I enjoy the flavors from my own summer garden all through the winter months. There are a few grocery-varieties that will always be on hand (especially Constant Comment) that evoke dear memories of the past. And in that never-quite quenched search for the exquisite, the never-before known flavor, the ultimate tea…well, there are some of those that I love as well. The point is, the longer I live, the more I realize that free can taste just as delicious as $$$. Drink what tastes good, and what satiates your soul.
