Mmmm. I was having such a hard time putting my finger on why I really like this tea, then I reread the description with the “bergamot” and it all made sense! I lovvvve Earl Grey. I wouldn’t say this tastes like Earl Grey, but definitely reminds me of it in a good way.

When I was remembering this tea before drinking it, it presents as a dessert tea. Realistically it’s not super sweet, it’s a subtly flavored “sweetish” black tea that consequently goes really well WITH dessert. Slightly vanilla/caramelly for some reason.

I had happened upon a tin of the sachets of this at Chapters and bought it upon first whiff, It was clearly a success as I’ve since ordered the loose tin from the H&S website.

Branching out from the super sweet dessert teas that I’ve been obsessed with for the last 2-3 years, this is an awesome direction to go in!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
