Oh, how I love this tea! I have always loved Earl Grey teas but have been getting easily burned out by them as of late. They either have been coming off as too perfumey to me or overly astringent so I have been avoiding them… All the while kind of craving them. So when I smelled Countess of Seville the last time I was in DAVIDs, I crossed my fingers, held my breath, and picked up 50g.
Dry leaf: fresh orange zest, fresh orange juice, bergamot, green tea
Liquor: orange zest, subtle bergamot, subtle green tea notes
Tasting notes: fresh & lively orange, soft bergamot
This tea is a perfect alternative to classic Earl Grey! The green tea base makes the entire cup so much fresher & the orange oil brings a super welcome brightness, all the while you’re still picking up on the bergamot nuances. You really get the Earl Grey inspiration but it’s such a lively cup. Mmm… Definitely keeping this in my tea cupboard.
Flavors: Bergamot, Earl Grey, Green, Orange Blossom, Orange Zest
