This tasted strange last night. Woody and the bergamot was kind of muted. I’m not sure why; I steeped it 5 minutes in boiling water which seems pretty standard. But, the boyfriend liked it for some reason.

I added this tea but can’t find a photo/description on the site as it’s sold out.
This is another from my Special Teas super-sale shipment.
I was worried that the rooibos and earl grey combination would really not work for me. It’s not bad, though. The flavours co-operate somewhat with the bergamot front and centre and the rooibos woodiness lingering underneath. It’s not blowing me away, though, and it’s not the same without a strong black tea base. Pretty much exactly what I expected.
It’s been a while since I had a nice, straightforward black tea. I was a bit worried I’d find it dull.
I picked up a black tea sampler at Special Teas during a summer trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake. I tried a couple and then largely forgot about it. Now I think I’ll revisit them, use them up, and perhaps order more (or grab lots when I go back this year). Looking through their site, there looks to be a great (huge!) variety of nice quality teas and interesting blends at awesome prices. I remember the store being nice, too.
This is nice, rich, and bold. I’m enjoying it while trying (and obviously failing) to write an essay.
A really lovely light, orange-scented rooibos; tasted lightly of oranges, with sweet citrus undertones. Really enjoyable!
