Strong citrusy flavor with undertones of bergamot and black tea. If I had steeped it longer, I wonder if the lemon and orange peel flavor would have overwhelmed the tea. It is not really the taste of the fruits of lemon and orange, but of the peel – sharper, but not bitter or astringent. It is certainly not like the orange of a ceylon orange pekoe. I enjoy the taste of Lady Grey, but only when I am in the mood for this kind of strong citrus flavor.

Bio

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
