1107 Tasting Notes

Hmm, I guess I haven’t reviewed this yet. Okay!

I am not an earl grey person at all because I really don’t like bergamot and I imagine this is why I don’t like this tea very much. I decided to give it a try because I thought the unusual combo of flavors would be different enough to possibly change my mind, but unfortunately that was not the case. I am coming to appreciate black tea and rooibos combinations since you get the flavor of black tea with less caffeine, but I’m just not into whatever they did with the chocolate and berries. Honestly, it doesn’t taste like chocolate or berries or earl grey, it just tastes… weird. I can’t figure out what it reminds me of. Not undrinkable, but weird and mildly unpleasant.

Another downside worth mentioning is that there is very little leaf in each bag. I have to use two in all but the smallest of mugs.

So refreshing! There’s a clear lemon taste and a fruity sweetness that I’m sure is the honeydew, but it doesn’t overwhelm (nor is it overwhelmed by) the sencha. I want to get more and try this iced!
