From The Tea Emporium

Round cup, with good tea flavour. The Ceylon gives a flowery character and the Assam gives a malty character. Blended together with these two excellent estates teas are Cinnamon, Passion Fruit and Mango flavored teas.
Tip: Use 1tsp per 6oz cup; heat fresh water to a boil; let steep 3-5 minutes.

When I took the first sip of this tea, I though, mmm… a refreshing Earl Grey! I drank it, formulating my review around the bergamot flavor, and then went to write my review. But, wait, it’s not an Earl Grey? Cinnamon!? Passion fruit!? Mango!? Really!?

This tea has completely thrown me.

It’s an Earl Grey. Only it’s not.

Dry, the tea looks beautiful. It’s black with long, yellow petals scattered throughout. It smells refreshing and clean, slightly spicy. 200/1.25 min. I went with a light steep. I’m really glad I did as this is one heck of a strong tea. It smells of Earl Grey. It looks like Earl Grey. It tastes like Earl Grey. It’s bitter like Earl Grey. Hm. It’s not Earl Grey?

Oh well, it’s still good.

Thank you, Indigobloom, for this baffling, yet lovely tea swap! :)

Hmm, early grey, really? I never considered that! to me, EG tastes kinda earthy and floral in a bad way, but this one is more chocolatey. I updated the pic, is that what it looked like?? I’m wondering if maybe I put the wrong tea in the bag… but then I haven’t got any EG in my cupboard except my rooibos!

Indigobloom

either way, good that you enjoyed it! :)

I did get some of the maltiness, but I think that I picked up on the floral notes as bergamot. I’m not certain. I did enjoy it a lot, though. Yes, it looks like the photo. :)

I had this yesterday, as a latte. I added sugar, but apparently too much. It was OK. Not great, but OK. I’ve had chai prepared the “real” way with fresh spices etc a few times lately and it was oh SO good.
It is possible I didn’t add enough leaves but I’m not sure how to gauge that when steeping in milk
I love this tea so no way am I writing it off. Unless this happens consistently. If it does I will be heartbroken :(

This is a lovely, strong and slightly spiced tea. And I like my tea strong. I love it as a way to start off the day.
