I love my bergamot.

I got this as a free sample from the NM Tea Company and I wish I had a couple ounces of it, this is good stuff. I’m usually not too crazy about mint teas because the mint tends to get overpowering, but in this tea I can also taste the tea and more importantly the bergamot. The mint blends well with it.

I only meant to steep this tea for 2 minutes but got distracted, I think it would be better with a shorter steeping time but it was still good. Added just a little sugar and drink it like I drink my regular Earl Grey – enjoying and trying to make it last instead of gulping it down too fast.

I had been wondering about this one. Good to see a review for it. On to the shopping list it goes.

Think I’ll order it next time I make an order from NM Tea co, I like their free shipping, and none of the other Casablanca teas in the database were exactly like this one.

If you like florals as well as bergamot, you might look at their Vintage Earl Grey.

And I agree- I love free shipping!

I looked at their vintage Earl Grey but got scared off by the rose petals, I had a bad experience with rose petals in another tea, tasted like perfume. But I think it might be my free sample in my next order.

I am pretty hesitant about rose myself. I completely forgot about the rose when I steeped this the first time and while I definitely tasted rose it wasn’t too perfumey for me. A sample is definitely the way to go if you are hesitant about rose.

Looks like I need to make another order from NM tea company… :D
