It’s evening and I haven’t had any tea yet, so while I was trekking over to the cafeteria, I thought to myself, “I need tea and I don’t care if it’s Red Rose.” Instead, they have a decent selection of Numi, so I’ll take it! I was also craving a black tea with cream and sugar, and that I did with this.
The bergamot is a lot lighter than I had hoped. Maybe the cream is drowning it out but you’d still think it could match up to that. As always, I appreciate the maltiness of an Assam, although I wish this were maltier. So in other words, overall, I wish this had more flavour.
I also left my teabag in the water for like ten minutes, even after adding the cream. I was hoping it would get stronger, but at least it doesn’t get bitter.
Now to get myself a kettle so I can just make tea in my own room. My tea stash is making sad faces at me.
