I received this tea in the yarn and tea swap with the Steepsteristas group over on Ravelry. Good tea and good yarn. What more could a girl ask for? :)

This is a really light Earl Grey-ish tea. The bergamot is very subtle. In fact, the orange and orange peel are the more dominant flavors. I’m getting just a hint of smoke. Again, it’s there just subtle. There is also a leather-y tobacco flavor. Everything works together to make this an almost Earl Grey in my opinion. It comes close but in the end it stands on its own with just a nod to the classic tea. Very nice. I’m happy I got to move this one from my wishlist to my cupboard!

Tea obsessed since 2010.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
