8 Tasting Notes
Very strong bergamot flavor, to the point where the tea flavors were a bit hard to find. Overpowering if drank on its own, but with a tiny bit of sugar (a teaspoon or less) and a tiny splash of milk, it’s a lot easier to taste the full flavors of the tea, at which point it becomes delicious.
I’d accidentally let the water cool off a bit after boiling it, so there’s a chance that the flavors from the tea were not fully extracted (whereas the bergamot flavor, simply being an oil in this blend, was probably extracted to the same degree as it would’ve been).
The tea leaves my tongue tingling a bit for a while with a not exactly pleasant, somewhat soapy, aftertaste.
Definitely a bit much in the bergamot department, though, and I’ll probably stick with a more mellow Earl Grey in the future.
