About to take a shower and I thought I would have this. Nice and refreshing. This was one of the two teas from the alchemy Blends that I did not buy. The thought of Bergamot with green tea put me off a bit so I decided to go with the Golden Earl instead of this. Well….I like this more then the Golden Earl.
The dry leaf smells like lemon and lavender with the Jingshan’s sweetness in the background. I can not make out much of the bergamot oil. I get more Lemongrass and Lavender with the green, which I LOVE, but I know the bergamot is the whole point of probably calling it “Lavender Earl Green.” Almost a cookie mint smell to the tea when brewed..:)

About to do a second steep…

David was nice and gave me a nice size sample that is enough of another go of this another night. Maybe even make it iced…..
