This tea is MAKING my Monday morning. Thank you Doulton!
Taken with a scant half teaspoon of sugar.
I know this is supposed to be black tea and flowers, but what it tastes like to me is some lemon grapefruit St. Germain hybrid flower :) I would say there were elderflowers in here but they are not listed. I don’t taste hibiscus like it tastes in the various herbals I’ve had at all. I find it in the same vein of an Earl Grey (citrusy but without bergamot, if that makes any sense). It is absolutely delightful! Very elegant. Very special.
I made a second steep at 5 minutes, no sugar, and it’s very tasty, floral/citrus.
I NEED a tin of this :) I think it would make a great iced tea for a very special occasion too!
