I want to thank Kyle for this sample!
As soon as I added the hot water to the cup with the sachet in it – the water started turning color instantly! It does ‘brew’ to a dark brown. The lavender is not overly loud nor does it smack you in the face. The Earl Grey aroma is fairly mellow as well.
The flavor is different but in a very good way! First and foremost this is a creamier-lavender flavor upfront followed by a bergamotty EG – heavier on the beragmot but lighter on the stereotypical-astringent EG.
The longer I let the silk bag steep the more I noticed the lingering of the after taste. The aftertaste gets more floral.
This is a delightful Lavender Earl Grey…nice and creamy, too! Neat!
