Backlog:

The aroma is heavenly! Strong notes of bergamot with vanilla. I don’t smell a lot of rose in the dry leaf (nor do I smell a lot of rose with the brewed tea).

This is a tasty Earl Grey creme type of tea. The rose is the “different” ingredient here and I do taste it, it weaves its way in and out of the sip. It’s never a really strong or obvious presence in the tea, but every once in a while, I’d pick up on it. It would peek in and say, “hello, here I am!”

The black tea is brisk and medium-bodied. The bergamot is tangy and strong (I like my bergamot like that!) and the vanilla tempers the sharper notes of bergamot. It’s a really nice balance of flavors.

This smells like a rose bouquet in the bag, but steeped, the rose mellows out significantly and there’s an intense vanilla-caramel creaminess, and bergamot. This is a flavour combination that works really well and that I quite love.

This is a sister tea to Tea Emporium’s Cream of Avalon in more than just name. They match on the combination of caramel-vanilla-bergamot, and then the additional flavours makes each of these unique.

I am finding this one has an incredible dry mouth feel this morning, which isn’t my favourite. It doesn’t taste astringent at all, but my mouth feels pasty sipping it. Maybe I still have traces of lingering toothpastes mucking things up.
