Smokey chocolaty bergemont oily TERRIBLE earl grey tea
honesty is the best policy, I always say :)
Its like they used lapsong in it. The smoky taste was ridiculous.
I wonder if it got contaminated in storage or shipping?
I’m positive there’s lapsang in it. I actually found it to be absolutely delicious, but to anyone without a taste for smoke, I imagine it’s not wonderful. I didn’t find mine to be oily though, but IIRC, there were little thingies (candies?) that dissolve in this one, and I find them to leave scum sometimes, which is less than pleasant.
Yeah, like Kittenna said, if there were candies in it the tea tends to get a little bit of a film on it and can be a little oily feeling. That’s the main reason why I don’t order too many Della Terra teas… they like sprinkles a lot. I’m not a huge fan of that, though I can drink them from time to time.
Sorry you had a bad tea experience!
I tend to avoid the candied teas from della terra. or rather, i tend to try them and not like them seeing as i’ve had all of their teas. this one was just terrible though. i’m not the only one who commented on it being super smokey so not thinking was contaminated.. was just terrible.
