This is going to be a cupboard staple for me. As soon as I read the description of the tea, I knew I would like it becuase it had begamot (apparently thats all I need I guess).
The dry tea smells like a strong black tea, a mild bergamot scent, and I think I am getting vanilla. There is also a sweet fruity smell to it.
The brewed tea is very dark, which scared me a bit to taste it, but it was not too strong. The black base of the tea is well defined but it balances nice with the bergamot. Very similar to Earl Grey. There is definitely a sweet fruity taste, I can’t quite place which fruit it is, I want to say apple, purple grape…?
I think this tea should have been names Earl Grey in Paris!

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
