Bright fresh bergamot. No astringency in the otherwise nondescript tea base. Definitely a step up from dusty bitter tea bags. I can drink this without additions. Which is rare for EGs but I’ve only had them bagged before now. I actually had a packet of sugar ready just in case, but it was unnecessary. :) this is the one with a Ceylon base. I’m eager to try my sample made with a Chinese black as that is supposedly more authentic. Would be fun to set up shot glasses of all the EG samples I got and try them all back to back. No time for that at the moment though. :(

Good cup in for the morning. The bright bergamot awakens your senses and the caffeine here is gently injected into your system.

In retrospect, the best time to try a new tea is not right after a breakfast of quinoa covered in maple syrup. Though even with my mouth feeling very maple-y, I was able to pick out the bergamot in this. But otherwise, I can’t really judge it. Oops. At least I have more so I can try again at a later date!

Mistakenly over-poured two full teaspoons, hence the “rabbit blood” (as they say in Turkish) red of the steeped tea. Anyways, this smells like wafery chocolate-ish when steeped, which is not overly sweet smelling. Smell mixes nice with the astringent quality of the Ceylon. Will try with a smaller spoon next time.
