I received this one from my sister-in-law, and… I opened it so badly that I cut through sachet inside.
So, I took the tea and prepared it grandpa instead of western style. First of all, it is very citrusy and bergamot in aroma, really full nose of earl grey notes which sounds pretty good.
When brewed, it took quite long to brew, I think around 4 minutes when it got nice EG notes in taste. Tea is quite chopped, but few long leaves were there too. I think the grade was Orange Pekoe, maybe Broken OP.
And – yep, it was quite delicious; very comforting citrusy notes, with tannic notes of tea. Later on, it turned out quite bitter, especially bottom of the cup. But yeah, it was brewed for long time, so it is not actually surprising. Too bad that they did not used any peels in tea, it was probably scented with oils which is kinda sad when they used pyramid sachet.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Tannic
