From DAVIDsTEA

Sweet orange

There are so many rumours about Earl Grey and his gallivanting ways. We like this one, about a trip he took to Spain. It’s said he fell for the Countess of Seville, a beautiful, dark-haired woman with a penchant for oranges. But did he really woo her with this green tea scented with bergamot and orange oil, cornflowers and orange zest? Either way, it’s a sweet, romantic twist on his original recipe.

Ingredients: Organic: green tea (Zhejiang Province, China), orange peel, cornflowers. With orange and bergamot oil.

After a long day at work I decided to try this one from my 24 Days calendar… The first few sips were definite green tea – but then the taste became something else as well. After reading other posters’ comments I have to agree with it tasting a bit like an Earl Grey (although I also still get the green tea taste, akin to the cheep green tea I’ve bought from Superstore or Walmart). I’m still undecided as to whether this is a tea that I would go out and buy, but it is one that I am going to resteep tonight and enjoy some more before having a post dinner tea latte ;)

I love citrus in my tea, but I’ve got to say that this blend isn’t thr best I’ve had. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but if I’m going for my citrus kick I think I’d rather go eith citrin oolong or the skinny.

This green tea is pretty great, especially if you’re into strong orange flavors. It’s a lot like a more hardcore version of Earl Grey, where bergamot reigns supreme and you can actually taste distinct orange oil with a slight hint of some flowers. Sweeter than EG too. It’s the most black tasting green tea I’ve ever had. Pretty slammin’.

This tea has a very light citrus flavour and the bergamot creates a very smooth taste that makes it easy to drink.

That said, I think this tea is a bit too mild for me. If one doesn’t really like grassy flavour typical of some green teas, I can see the appeal of this particular blend, but I would personally like something with a bolder taste.

This tea is absolutely delicious, my all time favorite that I have tried so far! The citrus in the green tea is amazing but not overpowering. Complete bliss, and tastes exactly like I thought it would!

I brewed another cup of the countess this morning, and made sure to keep my eye on the timer for a slightly shorter steeping time. Results: much better! More light and smooth citrusy flavour without the bitter after-bite. No need to add anything this time. It was a perfect and refreshing morning boost before I ran off to my internship :)

Oh wow. I just got a cup of this to go after I stocked up at DT this morning. I really like Earl Grey teas, but they are sometimes a bit heavy. This variation using green tea is excellent! I’m definitely going back for a tin of this stuff! It’ll definitely be a smoother alternative to some of my fruity green teas.
