Dry: Rich aroma of vanilla and lemony bergamot! This was one of the original teas that encouraged me to make the switch from coffee in the mornings. Pretty loose leaf black tea blended with cornflower petals.
Steeped: Deep brown clear liquor, no oily sheen noted. Smells wonderful! The citrus bergamot flavour can be too much for me in some Earl Grey blends, but this one is rounded out in a lovely way with straight-up vanilla and black tea.
Taste: I’m sure it will change at some point, but this is my current go-to morning tea. On the tongue, it is just as described: creamy vanilla meets citrus bergamot in a lovely organic black tea. It does hold up to multiple steepings, though it tends to lose creamy vanilla notes with the 2nd and 3rd. I like it with a dash of milk or without, hot or cold- very versatile. I don’t tend to add any sweetener, though if you have a sweet tooth then it may be just the thing. Overall, this blend is one of my go-to favorites and is also a lovely selection to introduce a friend or loved one to loose leaf tea.
