This is the last day of summer for me, sad! I know this is so cliche, but it really went by so fast. Back in May I was so excited to start nursing school that I wanted the summer to fly by. Now that it has, I’m sitting here saying “Just one more week of summer, please!”
This is the first Steven Smith tea that I’ve tried, and I found it at the local Sur La Table store. The flavor of the tea is very nice, but very light on the bergamot. I can taste more maltiness than bergamot in this blend. It does take milk and sugar fantasically, though, so I am happy with this cup.
-Large square silk sachet with a tag.
-Sachet smells of rich black tea and bergamot. Tea liquor aroma is malty with a very faint hint of bergamot.
-Tea liquor is a thick medium brown color.
-Bold and sweetly malty flavor and finish. Very light citrusy aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A smooth and sweet cup with a very faint hint of bergamot. More maltiness than bergamot flavor.
