  • “Not a bad tea. The dry smell is very similar to earl grey, very strong bergamot odor. I used water just off the boil, steeped for about 4-5 minutes (sort of forgot about it so not 100% sure)....” Read full tasting note

Not a bad tea. The dry smell is very similar to earl grey, very strong bergamot odor. I used water just off the boil, steeped for about 4-5 minutes (sort of forgot about it so not 100% sure).

The taste is very close to a cream of earl grey – minus the cream, at least to my palate. It’s a smooth, tasty floral black tea as you might expect. Bergamot is definitely noticeable in this. I’m not nearly refined enough to distinguish between assam vs. other black teas so I can’t comment there.

Mine ended up a little bitter, though that is probably my own fault. Not my favorite but definitely a nice tea.

Not a lot of astringency, which was nice as I am not a huge fan of Assam teas. Nice malty flavour and beautiful copper colour. I would have like to have tasted more citrus and spice coming through.
