From Nature's Tea Leaf

Bergamot Green Tea is a select Sencha green tea with genuine, dried pieces of bergamot. The Sencha tea leaves are green and have a flat, smooth, and narrow body. Bergamot, a “Chinese bitter orange,” is a citrus aurantium, a type of citrus fruit that is yellow in color with a pleasant fragrance and sour, sweet taste. When infused, the tea liquid is light yellow. Naturally fortified with antioxidants, our Bergamot Green Tea is potent with a citrusy aroma and a bold and stimulating flavor. With a hint of muscatel, this tea has a pleasantly dry finish you are sure to enjoy.

I got a sample of this a while ago from Lazey, but just found it in one of my tea boxes recently. Thanks!

Also I went through my cupboard and discovered two teas in there that shouldn’t have been there, thus I am down to 164. Woohoo!

So this fits into my recent trend of disliking most flavored green teas, particularly sencha bases. Especially when I sipped it hot, it was too peppery and savory, with a strong grassiness as well. As it has cooled down it’s mellowed, and the bergamot is coming out more as well. Definitely better cool than hot, and probably better still cold, which is probably what I will do with the rest of my sample.

Snow day. Staying on the couch waiting for the end of the world. I need Earl Grey but its at work. This has bergamot. Close enough. Actually it is completely different. As I was sipping this I kept thinking, this reminds me of something I’ve had before. Hmmm. This is peppery. The Earl Green I get from Empire Tea Services is peppery but much brighter and with more emphasis on the bergamot. This is lighter and darker. Trust me that makes sense if you try them both. What does not make sense is that this reminds me of Gurmans Pepper Mango without the heat. Completely unexpected and interesting.

Interesting indeed! I love that Earl Green from ETS and the Pepper Mango, too! daughter’s fiancé had given me the Pepper Mango he bought in Dublin because he said it tried to kill him. Turned out he didn’t have experience preparing and drinking green tea. I made some for him last time he was here and he liked it.

No one mentioned the pepper on Natures tea Leaf website reviews. Maybe I am all messed up today but I thought it was the primary flavor. I’ll send you some when the world settles a little.

This is not Earl Grey but I still love my bergamot. This tea is more vegetal than citrusy, a nice break from all the dessert teas I’m usually drinking. The bergamot becomes more noticeable as the tea cools, and a pinch of sugar may help bring out the bergamot even more but this tea is fine alone. Has a slight peppery taste too, must be the sencha.
