106 Tasting Notes
after first pouring water over it – it had a very strong grassy/herb scent, but after a few moments it toned down into a very light and sweet scent. The flavor was much stronger than I’d anticipated after the light scent, but the sweetness of the honey/peach really rounds out the flavors nicely – overall it’s a very enjoyable green!
Steep 2 – interesting, I’m picking up sort of a salt & pepper scent that I think might be coming from the orange peel. The flavor is MUCH more citrus-y and less floral-y this time around. And the smokiness from the 1st steep is almost non-existent, but seems to highlight the marigold more. Very nice 2nd cup!
Definitely a very mild and sexy tea, as they say in the description. Once brewed the orange peel comes off in the scent and the taste is loaded with marigold plus hints of citrus. The marigold almost gives it a touch of smokiness too IMO, or perhaps I just oversteeped? Overall, a very pleasant cup – looking forward to steep #2 and 3.
I really like this tea, but I seem to like my earl grey somewhat tame. The cream really mellows it out, the bergamot is very light. It has a lovely scent – very sweet, delicate, shortbread cookie-like.
love it – nice and light as long as you don’t oversteep.
very good blend of citrus flavors, really well rounded out – first the orange rooibos and the orange peel, the passion fruit really comes out towards the end in back of the palate along with the pineapple
