I knew I was going to like this one based solely on the smell. Strong and sweet oil of bergamot with a black tea base lingering in the background. The tea brews up a nice dark orange colour. It is a smooth with a light to moderate black tea base, it is not bold and there is no astringency. The bergamot is strong but not overpowering, just the way I like it. It is sweet, orange/lemon flavoured. It doesn’t say that it is natural oil of bergamot but it feels natural on my taste buds and there is none of the chemical taste that sometimes comes with just flavour of bergamot. I bought the Sloane sample pack a long time ago and forgot I had not tried this one yet. I am mad I waited so long, but also happy that I know have the whole 1.1oz to savour. I will most likely be purchasing a large tin of this whenever I find it on sale.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
