I’m very grateful for Doulton sending me this as I have never tried it until now.
It’s smells very herbal…very much like Medicinal Tea. It doesn’t taste like Black Tea to me. It doesn’t taste like white, either. I can’t taste any fruit or any peppermint at all – even tho the description does say that the flavors are to be slight.
“Provence is a modern twist on Earl Grey resulting in a soothing and energetic tea.” – it says…
This is light years from any Earl Grey Taste or twist I have ever had and would never, ever compare the two or even mention them in the same sentence!
I really don’t find this soothing and I don’t think it would be fair of me to judge the actual energizing potential properties or claims because I have been going crazy all day with work and Black Teas!!! LOL
The more I drink it the more I think I might be able to finish the cup but it’s not something I would buy. It you are into herbal-medicinal type tasting teas I think you would like this. BUT…I, personally, wouldn’t go by the description because I don’t think much of it is even close…this is one of the few times I will ever mention that…but, I had to point it out.
As an After Thought…again, something I had to mention – which differs from my previous statements and findings…
After it cools a little I could notice the peppermint in the aftertaste…so I wanted to be sure I DID state that.
This is a strange tea.
Again, I can finish the cup and thankfully I didn’t quit tasting just after the first sip, but I doubt I would buy it.
