Mmmm. I was having such a hard time putting my finger on why I really like this tea, then I reread the description with the “bergamot” and it all made sense! I lovvvve Earl Grey. I wouldn’t say this tastes like Earl Grey, but definitely reminds me of it in a good way.
When I was remembering this tea before drinking it, it presents as a dessert tea. Realistically it’s not super sweet, it’s a subtly flavored “sweetish” black tea that consequently goes really well WITH dessert. Slightly vanilla/caramelly for some reason.
I had happened upon a tin of the sachets of this at Chapters and bought it upon first whiff, It was clearly a success as I’ve since ordered the loose tin from the H&S website.
Branching out from the super sweet dessert teas that I’ve been obsessed with for the last 2-3 years, this is an awesome direction to go in!
