1 sachet steeped 4 minutes in 90C water, drunk bare.
And now, the last new-to-me sachet from my Kusmi Earl Grey sampler …
Oh. Oh, my. Well now.
An amazingly well-balanced blend. A light-coloured and light-bodied liquor serves up a bright and mineral … I want to say Ceylon-led-blend? Not sure. Bergamot is soft and subtle and charming, definitely on the light side, and that’s just fine here. The vanilla flavour is very subtle, thank goodness, and only announces itself in a whisper after you’ve gotten bergamot and orange, at least. I also caught some grapefruit notes. A very gently warming spice taste at the end: cinnamon maybe?
Wow. An utterly lovely blend, and, in my experience, unique. I look forward to trying this one made with loose tea.
