9 Tasting Notes
This is one of my favourites as I’m generally crazy about Earl Grey. It makes a perfect afternoon or after a meal kind of a tea for me.
The vanilla is just enough and not overwhelming like some other Cream of Earl Grey blends out there. I also like the bergamot and that also feels like it is blended very moderately.
This tea gets dark and heavy really fast so you have to experiment with the amount you put in your cup until you find the right balance. It feels a bit heavier to other black Chinese teas and leans more towards the Indian teas for me. Great tea to start the morning with or whenever you need a stronger caffeine pick up.
I like the zesty taste of this tea. Does it really boost your metabolism? I’m not sure but it makes me feel better when I have a little cold or congestion or just low in energy. I’m not normally a fan of pu-reh but I don’t mind it in this blend. Overall its not one of the “enjoying life more” kind of a tea for me but rather a " I feel like crap & need something" one!
I had this tea for the first time at a cafe. I don’t know it was the creme brule tart I was having with this tea or the tea itself, but I fell in love with it.
What I love the most about this tea, is that it is the only real orange “blossom” tea I have had here so far. Others usually have some kind of floral taste that is not necessarily orange blossom and accompanied by orange peel that isn’t bad if you’re looking for it.
The orange blossom with the oolong tea makes a really smooth blend that I really like. I have this tea whenever I am not feeling like a super strong tea.
