Back logging from this morning. My thanks to TeaNerdette for the sample. I enjoyed this one today at my last day at work. What a perfect calming cup of tea for such a stressful day. I could taste the hints of apricot and just enough bergamot too. It should be noted that I am basically terrified of Earl Grey teas of any kind (I’ve tried quite a few to get over this). But this one was very light and not scary at all. In fact I just might have to pop into Teavana (there I said it….cover me I’m going in ;) ) to pick up some more.
I’ve tried the traditional Earl Grey teas from a variety of places, but none of them ever “did it” for me. But this one is very different. Sure the bergamot is there, but it isn’t as harsh as it seems in more traditional Earl Grey teas.
In fact this one is very light, but pretty smooth when drinking it. I also added a little agave to sweeten it just a little. There’s also a pretty color that comes out in this tea. The smell is amazing – that’s the best way to say it. This is a tea I plan to keep in my stash.
