drank Troika by Kusmi Tea

The first sip is pretty heavy bergamot but then the orange comes in at the end and mellows it. Smells amazing. I don’t get the bitterness other reviews mention so maybe I lucked out on steeping time or something. There is a mild bit of astringency/dryness to it, but that’s all I notice in this cup.

The flavors diminish somewhat as the cup cools, but I’d like to try this one iced.

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
