This (#86) is one of those weird one-off teas, where I have only this tea from this company and nothing else. But I love it. Bergamot and rose and passion fruit and LOVE. An appropriate Valentines tea, I guess. It almost reminds me of DF’s Amore, but I do like that one a little better, and I am more likely to order from DF in the future than Chado. Even so, this is still quite a tasty tea.

Thank you, Dinosara for the opportunity to try this complex and very interesting tea! I completely understand what you meant when you talked about the different elements of this tea blending together in such a fascinating way. It’s not quite what I’m looking for in an Earl Grey, but it’s only by trying so many different varieties that you do get to dial that in!

I got this sample in yesterday, and I could smell it before I even opened the box! It’s a very sweet fragrance, and it smells exactly the same when brewing. The taste, with no additives, is heavy and complex. I taste the rose, maybe a bit of vanilla, but I think I’m mostly getting the passion fruit flavoring and the rose. There is no bitterness, and very little astringency, if any. It’s ok, but not something I’d seek out. The rose is a bit off-putting for me, and combined with the strong scent, it’s just not my thing. It’s quite possible that the addition of sugar could save it, though.

A spot of sugar does seem to lighten it up a bit, but I think it brings out the rose even more. I am getting a touch of black tea now, though. I think this must be one of those things where you either love it or you don’t. I may try it again, but I’m definitely not loving it right now.
