I have always been curious about Steeped Tea. An acquaintance of mine sells it, but I didn’t really want to buy it from her just in case I didn’t like it, because then I would feel like I would have to continue buying from her, even if I didn’t like the tea. I have also thought about being a consultant. So many of my friends are into the “sell from home” type of thing….maybe I should give it a try. So I guess I needed to try the tea to see if I was really interested. And then years went by and I never got around to sampling some of the tea.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to a trade/craft sale and there was a lady selling this. I asked her what her fav black tea and she suggested this one. I thought, here’s my chance to try this company, and I like earl grey generally, so I will give it a shot.
On to the tea….the bergamot is a little strong in this blend. There is a hint of vanilla but not “creamy” enough in my opinion. The base seems to be a tad astringent but maybe I should lower the temp next time I brew.
Overall, I like the cream earl grey from Zen tea and the blend from my local tea shop more than this offering.
The price point of $10/bag is a little too high to pay (in my opinion). But maybe that was just what this particular lady was selling it for, I’m not sure what price they usually are.
I will have to try the other tea that I bought from the company, but I think I will pass on becoming a consultant for this company…..maybe I should sell my own hand crafted items instead!
Flavors: Bergamot, Vanilla
