Not sure if it’s a difference between bagged and loose, or my palate has improved but I finally pick up the bergamot note in Paris. Also, a sweet edge bordering on dessert but I still don’t characterize it as vanilla. Oh well, just have to have more frequent cuppings to get this tea. Btw, I prefaced this tea with a tasting of Golden Moon’s French Breakfast which is stated as a single estate Ceylon. I’m guessing Ceylon is one of the black tea blends so this could have “primed” my taste buds. Wish I had time to do this every morning.
