Wow Choice – way to surprise me with this bagged tea! Great Genmaicha flavor with those itty bitty tea shavings. Grassy. Toasty. Not malty enough, but it’s not loose-leaf so I wasn’t expecting much.

Inexpensive Genmaicha that hits the spot. Tea is thin bodied but flavorful. Better than I expected.

Flavors: Grass

Very subtle tea – as white teas should be! Delicate and smooth bergamot flavor. Yes, this tea is not as strong as Earl Grey.

Personally, I never liked the assertiveness of the Earl, but I love bergamot. That is why I first tried this tea.

I love No. 9, The White Duke, BUT Bellocq teas are very expensive. Thankfully, I received a canister as a Christmas gift!
