Thank you Jason, for sending this along to try. First of all, this is a TEA BAG and not loose leaf. That might matter. I didn’t see any listing for a tea bag version of this on Steepster. I only steeped this for four minutes instead of the recommended five minutes and it definitely wasn’t boiling water. Sheesh is this bitter and astringent. The smell of the bergamot is good though. It just reminds me of that terrible Earl Grey teabag I had a while back that almost scared me away from all Earl Grey. I like cremey Earl Grey better anyway.
