14 Tasting Notes
Very woodsy and floral if brewed gently; the jasmine is sickeningly overpowering if not. Quite bitter, astringent undertones, which are refreshing diluted. Enormous leaves, which develop from barely-infused to over-steeped very rapidly as they unfurl. It might make good ice tea.
I grew up drinking this when no-one could be bothered to shop for anything more exciting (that was a lot of the time). The tea base is good and the bergamot pleasing, but both are coarse in stronger brews (the bergamot more so than the base). Must be bought fresh — I’ve drunk too much of this abandoned in an armoire from years-past visits from England!
Previous reviewers are correct in that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of quality control between batches.
