This tea was a gift from Kashyap, as a sample collection to remedy my terrible experiences in finding a decent lavender earl grey.
Leaf appearance: Small, reddish brown tea leaves, accompanied by blue/grey lavender blossoms and scant citrus peels.
Scent: Strong Bergamot, with wonderfully citrus overtones and the floral lavender playing nicely as an undertone.
Wet leaf: Brown, truncated leaves open among greens and oranges from the lavender and citrus peels.
liqueur: Light brown, almost reddish
Nose: Lavender and bergamot dance about a hearty black tea smell
Taste: It’s earl grey, with lavender. Pretty straightforward, and this balance between the citrus-y bergamot and the floral lavender was heavenly.
I would love to purchase this tea in the future.
