I can’t figure out why this smells like bubblegum to me. Both the dry leaves and the tea seem to. It doesn’t really taste like bubblegum at all though which is probably a good thing, unless you’re really looking forward to having some bubblegum flavored tea. I keep wondering what those little blue flowers are scattered around in so many Earl Greys I’ve seen. Do they even add any flavor or are they just there to look pretty?
Ah well, this is pretty solid and hard to mess up too badly, though I may have steeped it a little too long this time as the aftertaste was just a bit more bitter than usual.
