Do not store this tea without proper storing equipment! Open the bag and you will literally be blasted with the essence of bergamot. A plastic bag will not cut it. Now that I’ve warned you would you like to know what it tastes like? If you like Earl Grey you need to try this blend. The first flavor sensation to hit your tongue is the bergamot with a subtle touch of the earthy black base. Then the lavender comes strolling along and it all flows down so nicely.
