It is not the first tea that I purchased from this pride-filled and well established company that has left me standing in the rain with a quite average, therfore rather disappointing cup of tea.

Rough, very strong teas are used for this blend. Ceylon or Assam would be my guess.
Anyways, the fragile scent of the bergamot hardly gets a chance to break through no matter how often I alter water temperature, steeping time or amount of tea leafs.

Interesting…I’ve always preferred Twinings to the other brands I’ve tried for E.G. because it has a very “clean” tea taste with just enough bergamot. Different strokes for different folks, I guess!

…I honestly start thinking that maybe there is something wrong with me after I read the comments of other drinkers to this tea.I do remember one comment in particular where someone describes the smell that fills the room just by opening the box of leafs. And that exectly is the point…the fragrance, which is great, promises a very fruity brew, very rich in citrus notes. But that is not the case due the strong blend of tea leafs.

This is not Ceylon or Assam teas. It’s 100% China teas.
