9 Tasting Notes
Having a perfect cup of this right now. Thank you, rock sugar! Thank you, electric water kettle! Thank you, me, for not forgetting it and letting it steep too long.
This one wants to go bitter on you, so do ahere to the guidelines regarding steep time. :) It is gorgeously delicious when done right.
Oo. So not happy with this. I love lemon, but I find this tea so very sour. It’s not just the tartness of the lemon, but there’s something else, maybe the rosehips, that I find unpleasant in taste.
Before I give up completely, I promise to try adding plenty of rock sugar to the tea maker as suggested by a number of you. Perhaps proper sweetening will save this tea for me.
Oh my word, do I love this tea.
I’m a fan of EGs, and this is the smoothest, most lovely EG experience I’ve had to date. The very slight vanilla notes give it a creamy feel, and the bergamot is gorgeously aromatic. I am in love.
I steep for about 2.5 mins, with approx 10 oz of water to a tsp of tea. Add in a little rock sugar to my tea maker, throw in a little cream, and this is seriously the most perfect cup of tea I’ve had in a long, long time.
