Rather than being flavoured with perfume or flavourings, these balls of tea are exposed to 3 parts Jasmine Blossoms per one part Tea at a heat which imparts the lovely Jasmine scent into the leaves before they’re hand rolled into balls of perfection. Only the best leaves are used for this high quality brew. When infusing, don’t worry about the balls unfurling, that will happen over a long period of time and doesn’t affect the nature of the infusion. Yes, these are a little on the pricey side but think about how much you’d spend on a bottle of wine, and you definitely get more out of these than that! Also, the balls can be reinfused up to 5 times in the same sitting.
3 Tasting Notes
This tea has been discontinued. Try Sencha Sensation or Gorgeous Geisha for something similar.
Wonderful example of an Earl Grey. Traditionally an Earl Grey is a tea which is flavoured with Bergamot essence, extracted from the Bergamot orange. I find most Earl Grey’s to be flat and uninspired, whilst T2’s version is rich with refreshing and uplifting Bergamot scents and taste which trumps its competitors. If you like real Earl Grey, and not the piddly stuff with extras added to it, this is your brew. Recommend a shorter brewing time so that the Bergamot does not become overpowering.
