hmm, this one is sneaky. Initially I was put off by the citrus peel and cornflowers? in the mix and the scent was off…not the powerful bergamot oil smell I expected. I figured, at best, this would be like Twinnings’ Lady Earl Grey. Once steeped (212&6-7 minutes), allowed to cool…here comes the flavor! Earl Grey it is! Very flavorful with a long finish. I’ll put this one on my favorites list.
(and a nod to teaequalbliss for pointing this one out to me, TU)
(edit: research indicates that the citrus is likely bergamot peel!)

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
