From The London Tea Room

This tea is not listed on their website, as it’s a seasonal special to commemorate Valentines day, so I’m making up this description, based on what they told me when I bought it.

Like the Naughty Vicar, this tea contains black currants & vanilla, but with a stronger black tea base & the addition of Bergamot.

Oh… this is really good. And apparently has bergamot…but not in the way that i dislike bergamot. It’s more like the bergamot that’s in the upton tea that i enjoy.

i’m exausted today. No idea why i came in today. should have worked from home. Looks like my other half made enough of a stink at work today that they’ve given him the time off again..so back to planning mode lol. eesh!

edit: oh yeah..the tea? delicious berry taste, though not so much with the vaniilla. I do like how this one blends together though it’s berry without being overly sweet or too generically fruity.

Tea #6 from HHTTB2

Oof! What a potently bergamot smelling dry leaf!

The wet leaf still smells very strongly of bergamot, but the liquor itself is very much tea smelling with a light berry fruitiness.

The base is robust and strong, but smooth. The bergamot isn’t the most prominent flavor, but it is potent and has a definite citrus bite. And the currant flavor is very good, and not fake. It’s a little like an E.G. with berry flavor. There’s no substantial lingering aftertaste note.

I added a tiny bit of Bailey’s Vanilla Brown Sugar creamer (because it sounded like the most amazing thing ever, and I pretty much begged Fiance to let me get it. It is also unfortunately nonalcoholic), and had a wonderfully decadent cup! It’s like drinking fresh berries and cream. The bergamot is more like citrus noise than a large piece of the flavor. But the tea is more than strong enough to stand up to the creamer and excel. The aftertaste now and incredibly lingering delicious berry happiness. Yuuuuum.

Home from the London Tea Room, I’m enjoying a cup of this blend, which they offer each year around Valentine’s day. The black tea base is bold, but smooth. The flavors of black currants, vanilla, & bergamot are nicely balanced & although I drank the first few sips plain, the addition of stevia really makes all the flavors pop! It’s delicious! My book club buddies are in for a treat!

Blackcurrant, vanilla, bergamot? Sounds similar to Paris, one of my favorite flavored teas!

You’re one of my tea-mates from the bookclub, so there is a sample headed your way! I’ll look forward to your review! :D

HH teabox! This one sounded lovely – black currants, cream, bergamot. And the taste is nice! The flavors balance themselves out. Actual fruit flavor, though I couldn’t tell you if it was actually black currants but it wasn’t fakey gross… it tasted like SOME kind of actual fruit. Just a little bit of cream (could have used more) and some bergamot that reminded me of a refreshing grapefruit. The black tea base helped out the nice flavor combination that I haven’t seen before!

I’m glad you liked this one! This was one of the teas I got for the steepster book club when we read American Heiress.

Tea #17 from the Here’s Hoping TTB

I was excited to see this end up in the TTB. I’m from St. Louis originally, where London Tea Room is located, but haven’t made it back for a visit in nearly five years. I just saw that they were closing their downtown location and moving to Tower Grove, so I’ll have to check out the new location next time I’m home.

It’s been a very very long time since I’ve had this tea, I had forgotten how much I liked it and now that I’ve had another cup I really miss being able to walk over to London Tea Room for a cup of tea now and then. Since I live in a small coffee drinking town, there just aren’t that many places available for me to get a good cup of tea outside of my home.

This tea smells great in the package and even better while steeping. I’m not the biggest fan of currant or citrus teas, but for some reason I have fallen in love with this blend. I don’t think I’ve had another tea that has combined the citrus notes from the bergamot with the fruity flavors of currants, it really is a great combination. I’ll have to pick some of this up if it’s available next time I go home, which should be close to valentines day when this seasonal blend is offered.

I’ve discovered recently that I rather like the smell of bergamot. The flavour seems like standard earl grey with currants. It’s a good tea, but needs more vanilla.
