#adventageddon Day Three – 1/5

First advent tea today – I thought I had maybe tried this before (perhaps in the last DF calendar I did a few years back) but I don’t appear to have reviewed it so I guess not!? Regardless, I knew I wouldn’t be into it as soon as I saw what today’s tea was – I don’t love green tea and I’m not big on bergamot either so it was just a bad flavour combo for me…

In the end the bergamot wound up not being too bad; light and fruity though leaning a bit on being perfumey. However, the green tea was just not good; kind of like lawn clippings.

Advent day 3! Not a huge fan of this one. Very muted bergamot flavor, but still comes across as unfortunately perfumey. I’m getting a fishy smell combined with the bergamot, which just isn’t pleasant. Glad to be rid of it.

I thought I was feeling better yesterday so I took no meds, no EmergenC, no saltwater gargle and woke up today a bit stuffy again. While I don’t so much care about that, I am very much ready for things to get back to normal. And by things, I mean my tastebuds b/c don’t they know I have advent teas to try?! So rude.

Anyways, thankfully this was the tea of the day b/c (1) I don’t care that much for green teas or EGs and (2) bergamot is a strong flavor so even with my weird taste buds and my stuffiness, I can still taste it a little.

It’s muted and nothing special. Likely that’s b/c of me and also this being an EG green tea, which is not something I would have loved even if I was 100% better and my tastebuds were normal. On the plus side though…no licorice taste here.

I am surprised that this tea was not here!

Another Earl Grey today, or some similar blend with bergamot. This is acutally called Earl Grey instead of the morning “Grand Gout Russe”. In sachet there are quite nice amount of green leaves, including blue flowers as picture shows. The bergamot was certainly noticable after I took sachet out of foil prison.

I think the blue flower will be cornflower and is there just for colour. Looks pretty though.

After 4 minutes of steeping I get a nice, clear and lime green liquor. I was expecting a bergamot explosion of aroma, but instead I rather got a slightly bergamot and slightly needles.

In taste though, it is more about the bergamot. Yeah, it tastes like classic Earl Grey with a green tea base instead of black tea. It is more refreshing. The needles are still noticable too. I do not mind it actually!

I like that the tea, even steeped for 4 minutes is not buttery at all and not overwhelming grass notes. It is earl grey, so it tastes like it. Just maybe bit rough on tongue tip.
