I was excited to try this, especially when I did (mid-December) because this season on Grimm, some of the characters have been spending some time at the Sacher Hotel for which this tea is named. I’m a Grimm fan … so it was just … kind of cool to be sipping on this tea. I’m a Grimm Nerd.
I was even more excited when I opened the pouch and realized it was an Earl Grey blend! Yay! Bergamot! One of my favorite tea flavors!
The bergamot is a softer bergamot here … subtle … delicate. Not at all pefume-ish. I like the blend of black teas used (Ceylon and Darjeeling) – it keeps the tea tasting very light and a bit like something I’d imagine drinking in Vienna. Although … I wouldn’t want to encounter a Hexenbiest while I sip my tea in Vienna.
This tea gets extra points just because of the Grimm connection.
