Smells sublime when dry, Marco Polo-ish almost. But steeped, just a cup and I am quite uncertain. I feel the bergamot putting it firmly with earlgrey-ish territory (and out of Marco polo territory) and a vanilla/caramel taste. Base tea has some oomph but maybe too much oomph, it is tasting astringent to me. This is just not working for me. Tap water today smelled horribly of bleach, that can not help, must try this with bottled water and shorter steeping time.

Preparation

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
