MY REVIEW BEGINS HERE
Here are my thoughts on this tea:
I think it’s the bergamot that does it to me every time, that perfume scent I get with the earl grey teas. This is a strong brisk tea and it reminds me of he Earl Grey teas I’ve reviewed from Poland, it’s strong with such a wake up flavor of Earl Grey. The brew is a light brown with slight bitterness and no aftertaste.
What I liked:
It’s an Earl Grey, need I say more? I like the depth of this tea and how dark of a brew it is a great morning tea or a wake me up mid afternoon tea.
What I did not like:
Not a thing.
Until next sip, pinkies up and face the wind! You’ve got this!
