14 Tasting Notes
A great tasting tea for a very low price. I found this in the International section of my local grocery store and bought it on a whim, figuring that if it wasn’t any good, I wouldn’t be out much money, but it’s fantastic.
Simply, the most aromatic, fresh and perfect tasting Earl Grey tea I have ever come across. I bought this in bulk from a tiny shop in downtown Haworth, England (home to the Brontes). I am rationing it strictly for fear of running out. I have no idea where I can get more and I live across the sea and about 3000 miles away from where I bought this.
When I travel I buy tea as a souvenier. This one came from a shop called Dille & Kamille in Brugge, Belgium. It is a delightfully light and refreshing blend of green tea, lemongrass, rosehips and a hint of mint.
This tea comes in a “whole leaf pre-measured pochette”, basically, an amped up version of a tea bag. It’s nifty to prepare. It’s just a basic green tea, my grandmother gave it to me and the date on the packaging was over a year old, but it wasn’t opened yet and in an airtight tin so I gave it a try. I think if it were fresher it would have a more pronounced flavor so I squeeze in some lemon and honey to give it depth.
