Ugh, my throat is so sore. I love my sister, niece and nephew, but every time I see them this happens (they are adorable little plagues, and now I’m a not so adorable big plague and must act accordingly. sigh).
This tea has citric snap from assorted berries and citrus (and maybe the bright black base), with a hint of indulgent pepper and vanilla. It tastes great with or without milk, despite having what I suspect is a bergamot inclination.
There’s a lot going on here but it’s pleasingly well-balanced and round; it also feels like a “everyday” drinker, despite the pretenses it gives off. Unlike some teas from this company, I fell in love with it right away too. I’m trying to savour my 100g because I don’t know when I’d order from Mariage Freres again, but it’s likely in vain. I reach for this one a lot.
