2 Tasting Notes
This tea smells heady and delicious. When I first tried it, I was very disappointed because to me it does not taste at all like an Earl Grey, but I persevered because I was given quite a lot and didn’t want to hurt the gift-giver’s feelings.
I’m glad I did. This is a good vanilla black tea. The bergamot taste is nonexistent for me, but it smells warm and heavy and makes a perfect wintery tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Custard, Vanilla
I bought a sample of this recently and upon smelling it filed it away as ‘to try but not now.’ I finally got to it today, and I must say I like it quite a lot more than expected. It smells very floral when dry, but steeped the scent is less intense.
The taste is floral, but not overwhelming. It’s a sweet tea that I can’t imagine taking with additives—and that’s a good thing in my opinion.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Smooth, Sweet, Tea, Vanilla
