From Tiger Spring Tea

Bergamot oil from the citrus fruit grown in the Calabria district in Italy had become popular in the 18th and 19th centuries as a flavouring for gin and snuff. It was brought to Joseph Banks attention who is known to have experimented with flavourings. He is credited with adding it to tea, and it was most likely given the name Earl Grey, since he was the popular Prime Minister of the time. Our Real Earl Grey is scented using natural bergamot oil, rather than the synthetic scents commonly used. As a result it has a more citrusy nose and palate.

I received a box from my girl LiberTEAs today and here’s the first one I am jumping into! Woot!

The is a CRAZY-Intense scented EG, my friends!

And now I’m putting my tasters to the test…

Floral, FRESH Bergamot, a very nice EG flavor, and more FRESH Flowers!

It’s highly flavored but not as intense as the aroma and I totally agree with LiberTEAs…that everything about this is FRESH!!! This is Cream of the Crop, right here!

I am revisiting this tea today, having one more pot of it, so that I can send the rest to my SororiTea Sister.

Today it tastes a little “stiffer” … a little more astringent, not quite as seamless between the tea and bergamot. It isn’t quite as smooth as I remember yesterday’s cup tasting, I can even taste some bitterness, and I used the exact same parameters as yesterday.

However, I did just brush my teeth, which has everything to do with it. In a mouth with less residual zesty peppermint I suspect that this would be every bit as stunning as it was yesterday. So, if you’ve just brushed your teeth and are about to sip on this tea, I suggest that you drink a glass of water first to cleanse the palate of the left-over toothpaste taste.

In my experience, toothpaste ruins everything.

LiberTEAS

Yes… it definitely did in this case. Toothpaste + Earl Grey = blech
