I made this at Tony’s to enjoy in my bubble bath.
It’s one of his favorites, & although I don’t drink it often, I guess today is the day.
It’s main feature is a bright & juicy orange, with a touch of bergamot, & a lingering grapefruit finish. It’s a little on the acidic side for my tastes, but definitely bright & cheery. The base is earthy, & almost shu puerh-like, so although I’m no expert, I’d say it’s yunnan.

I have been sipping on this tea for a couple of hours and when I came to log it was surprised to hear there is bergamot in it! LOL I know what bergamot taste like but I really didn’t notice it much. I did THINK I tasted some fig – which is odd, but here it is BERGAMOT and you know now that I read this I KIND of get A LITTLE bergamot and a slight orange but its not one of those in your face bergamots at all YET I do enjoy it quite much. Its an easy sipper and quite enjoyable!
Thank you Terri HarpLady for sharing!! :) I do love anything from LTR!

Thank you Terri Harp Lady for this sample tea (But just wait, you won’t be thanking me in a minute!)

I read your review about how this Diamond Anniversary of the Queen, delicious tea is boyfriend ’Tony’s’ FAVORITE! But it’s not your favorite is it miss Terri?!

I must say this…

I am with TONY!

Your BF and I might just make some sweet oooh’s and ahhhh’s over this good tasting bergamot orange tea! I didn’t even think it was bitter or too strong tasting! It was delicious!

So watch out! (Hee Hee)

Tell ol’ Tony not to worry,…but I love this tea.
My pot of tea was smooth and rich. Really rich in a way that didn’t have any of the floral cream flavor that some bergamot tea’s have. This was black tea, bergamot, orange and smoothness.
Entirely lovely!

LOL!! Tony will be glad to know you like his favorite tea!
I really want to like it, and the funny thing is, years ago I really liked bergamot, but it just seems so overpowering & acidic to me now.

Sidebar: In my Verdant order today I have an oz of Bergamot Rose Laoshan black, which I am curious to sample. I remember a few weeks ago David said the current blends were going away, to be replaced by Fall blends, so I figured I’d better get some while I could! I plan to serve some of that to Tony this weekend.

Sipdown from Terri HarpLady! Thanks! It’s taken me forever to get to it, I know… AND I have a package for you going out next week! :)

It’s a smooth black tea blend. I think I prefer flavored blacks in general, but this was a good afternoon knitting tea.

It came today! What a wonderful surprise, Michelle! You made my day! Thanks :D

Nothing on the agenda for today except lots of homework and lots of tea. The tea leaves for this one smell really strongly of bergamot, but the tea itself smells like black tea and mostly a strong, tangy orange aroma. If I hadn’t known there was bergamot in this tea beforehand it probably wouldn’t have jumped out at me in the flavor either. It’s a smooth, malty black tea with a bright, citrusy orange finish. There is a very small bergamot aftertaste, but it’s not all that noticeable. I like this one!

-Dry blend has large light brown tea leaves with pieces of dried orange peel.
-Dry leaves smell strongly of bergamot with a hint of orange. Tea liquor aroma is of black tea and orange.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy dark brown color.
-Smooth malty flavor with a citrusy orange finish. Slight bergamot aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Black tea with a tart orange flavor. Very little bergamot.

I really shouldn’t have black tea this late. Oh well. It has that nice bergamot smell that I like. It tastes like citrus black tea. Better with a little milk, and cinnamon.

I was very curious about this tea as it is the favorite of my sister’s main squeeze. He seems like an intelligent fellow, so I imagined it would be pretty good. I was not disappointed when I smelled the raw product. My nose informed me immediately that this was the good stuff.

It smelled less wonderful after a three minute steep, less perfume-y and more…I don’t know…tea-ey? A vague hint of lemon or bergamot. That should have made it MORE perfume-y but somehow didn’t . Somewhere between the package and the hot water it seemed to have lost it’s feminine qualities and taken on a more masculine note. There was something in the way of an underlying scent, a kind of smokiness, that gave it a more manly quality. This made its appeal to the other gender understandable.

I found myself not really disliking the tea. I was just a little disappointed though, as the topnote left me expecting something more floral and perfume-y. The same thing happened when I tried Lapsang Saochang. These smoky teas, they sneak up on you.

Of course, that’s what I get when I’m trying unknown samples. When you have no labels from which to read ingredients and descriptions and are too lazy to go online and look them up for yourself, you’re bound to run into a few surprises.

This is from a sample box from my big sis, Terri Harplady. Our tastes are not always the same, but appear to coincide concerning this one. Like her, I’ll drink this when I’m in the mood and probably share it with my man. I suspect he will like it better. It’s ok, just not my favorite cup of tea.
