With a swirl of soy milk, I found this tea to be smooth and rich and true to company’s description of molasses and caramel flavor and aroma. Straight, the bergamot’s bitterness was prominent; to my tastebuds the soy milk brought it into balance as a counternote to the tea’s sweeter flavors. I so enjoyed tasting this tea that I chose it several times over the course of a few days, which is unusual for me.
It is also unusual for me to enjoy a flavored tea as much as I enjoyed this one; I often find flavored teas more enticing in description than in tasting, even with the addition of cream and sugar. I tasted this tea with those enhancers, which was of course a tasty cup, but I found a bit of soy milk alone to be perfectly delicious; no sugar necessary. Each sachet yielded not just one but two flavorful cups.
Thank you to redditor Loxieloxx, who sent me 10 sachets of this tea!
