Dry leaf aroma: Bergamot with undertones of creamy sweetness.
Preparation: Brewed western style in a glass infuser mug.
First/only steeping: 5 minutes at 210 degrees.
This Cream of Earl Grey has a pleasant creamy bergamot aroma. Freshly brewed, the black base is smooth and well balanced with the bergamot and vanilla flavors. Sometimes you get an Earl Grey that has too much or too little flavor, or a cream essence that veers towards artificial, however this one is just right. As the cup cools I note a sweeter, sugary undertone which suggested this would make an excellent iced tea.
I received this tea as a free sample, and I want to thank Good Life Tea for the opportunity to taste this. It is quite enjoyable!
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Vanilla
