Surprisingly, I’ve never had early grey tea before… It’s funny that my first time trying it is as a white tea.
I steeped this three times. The first time I made the water too hot and it was a little bitter. My reaction to the first sip was, “WHAT! What is this?” The bergamot oil was a totally novel flavor to me, and I actually didn’t like it. But with each sip, I enjoyed it more… To the point that I was loving it by the end of the cup. The second steep was delicious (better water temperature), and I think it actually tasted the best after the third steep! This is a tea I look forward to having again.
(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)
