ahh-mazing! I love this!
The black tea is bold and invigorating, very smooth and rich. It provides a nice backdrop of flavor for the bergamot and lavender without overwhelming them. It is not too astringent (actually, it’s really quite smooth and almost creamy, with very little … almost NO… astringency), and there is no bitterness to this.
The bergamot is the strongest note, but the lavender comes in very sweetly and softly, and there is no mistaking that it is lavender. These two flavors are very well balanced, offering a strong flavor without coming off like soap. I don’t like soap. But I do like bergamot and I like lavender … when they’re done correctly. And they’re blended masterfully with this blend. I love it!
