Trial number 2 of this tea, with a very precise steeping length this time. It certainly smells really creamy, with a hint of citrusy bergamot underneath. I’m afraid I’m still getting some bitterness in the taste, and now I’m thinking it’s the bitterness of the bergamot actually. It doesn’t taste as much like tannin bitterness as it does the bitterness of citrus, like eating the bitter pith of an orange. I feel like this cup is even more bitter than the last one I tried! It completely overwhelms any other flavor in the tea. I’m actually dropping my rating on this tea, because I don’t think I can finish this cup! Other folks like this one, so it could just be my extra sensativity to bitterness, but this tea is not for me.
