Personally: It’s no secret that I love tea and I will solicit places to try their teas, especially if I find that they offer unique and premier tea and tea products. When I find a company like Serendipitea I’m intrigued by their products and of course I want to share. I love their website and please check it out, it’s original and interesting.

Prior to brew: We all know I love an Earl Grey and I have reviewed more Earl Grey personally then anyone I have seen. This tea is no different with it’s strong citrus scent.
Brewed: this tea has a deep Amber brew. The scent is strong just like the brew.
Scent: Surprisingly this tea has a strong vegetal scent with the citrus of the bergamot following.
Flavor: The Earl Grey will fill the mouth with flavor, it’s strong and a slight perfume taste with a slight bitter approach.
Sentiments: For me there is nothing like an Earl Grey, this is a nice full bodied tea that fills your senses with flavor. A bit bitter with a perfume taste and a citrus taste that follows. This tea has two ingredients that just flow into an amazing strong tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “6”.
Till next Tea….
