drank St. Petersburg by Kusmi Tea
1904 tasting notes

It’s been awhile since I drank this tea. I dug out the tin because I’m sending soem to Wombatgirl, so I figured I’d have some while I was at it.

My initially assessment of the tea was pretty accurate as it turns out. This mostly tastes like an earl grey – I can taste the pungency of the bergamot and maybe some other citrus fruit, and I can pick up the vanilla notes now that I added a splash of skim milk to my tea. But as for the caramel and red fruits? Sorry, no dice. Maybe I need to steep it longer.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
