You all know how much I love earl grey tea! So, of course I was really excited to give this one a try. Overall a traditional earl grey blend of black tea and bergamot oil with the interesting addition of lavender, rose petals, marigolds and cornflowers.
The presentation of this tea is quite pretty, dark black tea with the light flower petals mixed through out. The aroma is also very nice with a decidedly floral scent. Finally, and more importantly, the taste was good too! Not quite the strong citrus burst typical of strong earl grey, but the bergamot still comes through enough. There is also a hint for flowers int he taste as well. The three flavors – the tea, bergamot, and flower petals – blend well together and are well-balanced.
This tea could easily become an everyday tea! It’s easy to drink, yet the taste remains interesting from start to finish.
Taste: 4 of 5 tea leaves – Quite a good cuppa!
Steepability: 5 of 5 tea leaves – this tea is easy to make!
