According to Teapod this tea consists of Sri Lankan black tea flavored with natural bergamot oil. Bergamot is an orange that is grown in Italy. The lemon peels and bright blue cornflowers added a nice punch of color to the dark brown leaves. They had a very strong citrus aroma. I steeped this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 212 degree water for four minutes.
This tea was earthy and sweet. The citrus flavor was well done, not too much and not too little. I am not a big fan of Earl Grey teas but this one was exceptionally good. Very often Earl Greys leave a thick and oily feeling in my mouth but that didn’t happen here. This is the second tea I’ve tried from Teapod and I’ve been very impressed so far. I would definitely recommend this tea.
