I’ve been super impressed with DT’s black teas…they are so good and sexy and take classic recipes and make them memorable Cream of Earl Grey and English Rose are just two examples of this fantastic trend that I couldn’t be happier about!
This tea just smells so amazing..like Earl Grey kicked up to 11.
The Bergamot is super heavy and the fruit bits of strawberry and the blue cornflowers make it come alive and I just want to drown in it..
I’m already totally head over heels and I haven’t even drunk it yet.
Being as super familiar with DT’s black teas as I am I made sure to only put in a shallow teaspoon..but kept the 5 minute steep time so we’ll see!
Hopefully the bitterness will not take over..sometimes it takes a lot of fussing to get it just right but it’s worth it.
Once brewed the smell of berries take over completely so I hope this doesn’t overwhelm the Earl Grey profile too much but damn it still smells good.(I do love my fruit!)
First taste and it is refreshingly and surprisingly light with a fruity taste..doesn’t have the full Grey profile but it has the Bergamot kick.
I think it would make a lovely iced tea…no Salted Caramel but not EVERY tea can be perfect.
This is a lovely light black tea.I do not love it as much as Cream of Earl Grey but it’s yummy and is a Earl Grey..wish it was a little more heavy but
I think this tea will grow on me.
