The additional steep time, sadly, didn’t do anything except bring out the flavor of what was either bergamot or something very similar – something very distinctly perfumey, in other words – and I’m not crazy about bergamot, so. Disappointing. I’ll probably finish the sample, but I won’t be repurchasing. Or maybe I’ll just hang onto the leaves to sniff at whenever I need a pick-me-up.
