REVIEW: There was definitely a caramel scent to this tea and since I do not look at ingredients till after I am done tasting I was surprised. There is no caramel in this tea. This organic tea has a medium body and bitter aftertaste. I believe this tea would be amazing hot with honey. There is a vanilla underscore to the tea as well which leaves a very nice aftertaste on second sip. I love an Earl Grey and this is an Earl Grey with a twist of “creme” being the Osmanthus petals and possibly some vanilla and caramel flavoring added in the Natural flavors.
Prior to brew:
Brewed: Mild Amber color
Scent: Caramel on first scent
Flavor: Vanilla with a slight bitter aftertaste
Sentiments: I liked this tea, it’s minus the normal Earl Grey flavors yet does a nice twist with the Osmanthus petals as well. Beautiful bodied and beautiful tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “5 ”
Till next Tea….
