Such a fabulous tea. I WAS drinking it with milk and sugar, but I recently invested in some agave, and what a great investment that was. It brings out the lovely citrusy-bergamot flavours in this tea wonderfully, without over sweetening it or any of the strange stuff that sugar will do to your cup. I can’t drink this tea unsweetened, because for some reason it tastes bitter for me (anyone else taste that bitterness too?). BUT I love not having to put milk in it, because it just seems strange for a green tea. Not for an earl grey, but just the fact that it’s green. It’s not an everyday cup of tea for me, but definitely pleasant and enjoyable whenever I’m in the mood.
Another note, I wish it was as citrus-y as it smells, but I think that might just be part of my eternal quest to find a perfectly strong citrus tea. I should probably just be drinking orange or grapefruit juice, but alas, I have taken it upon myself to find the perfect citrus tea.
And one more thing: On my second steep of this baby, it had this weirdly long, string-y tail of sediment in it. Being as curious as I am, I tried to pull it out of my cup, but it was just as elusive as my perfect citrus tea. C’est la vie.

Bio

I am a student on a mission to spend all of my hard earned cash on tea, and don’t have time to waste on a bad cup of tea!
I love DavidsTea, mostly because it is easily accessible for me and I like my tea on the sweeter side. I’m looking to expand further into the tea world, especially in terms of oolong and herbal teas.
My favourite teas are anything spicy, especially with cloves and/or cinnamon, anything nutty, minty, earthy, floral or citrus-y.
I am forever on a mission for a life altering grapefruit tea.
