#adventageddon Day Four – 4/5

This was another advent tea today which was a little bit of a let down for me – and not in the way I’d expected. When I saw the tea I felt weird about it because I don’t jive with bergamot and I’ve never had a pleasant experience with bergamot mixed with oolong that I can recall. Since I anticipated that, I made the tea as a large teapot to be split between everyone working in the lab with me today.

The dry leaf smelled ok – but not at all like Earl Grey/Bergamot. It was weird, and if I couldn’t smell it on the leaf I was unsure what would come out in the steeped tea. Sure enough, after the pot had steeped we couldn’t taste any bergamot at all in the infusion – you would have never known that this was an “Earl Grey Oolong” from blind tasting. On one hand I felt a bit of a sense of relief, but on the other if you were purchasing this with the intent of receiving an Earl Grey Oolong then I think you’d be deeply disappointed.

The other part is that, aside from not tasting like EG, the oolong itself was a little light/flat tasting and pretty boring. Not nearly as nice as the one I had yesterday, for sure. Just softly/weakly floral and a bit green. Really meh.
