I managed to make it 6 days before I forgot to bring my daily advent tea with me to work again. So this is for yesterday.
I love Earl grey. And to be specific, I love bergamot. So I was quite excited for this tea.
This was smells strongly of bergamot from the dry sachet. Once brewed it has a sweet citrus bergamot scent.
The tea tastes lightly of bergamot. The citrus essence is nice. The black tea base is moderately bold, is lightly dry but not stringent. I think the silver tips bridge the gap between the bergamot and the black tea. It adds a hay like taste and thickness to the tea. The flower petals smooth it out and add a faint hint of sweetness and pastry.
This is quite a good and interesting Earl grey. I would prefer a kick in your face black te and bergamot type Earl grey but this one is still tasty.
