The lavender is strong with this one.
So strong that it’s actually giving the bergamot a run for it’s money. I’d like to think that lavender and bergamot are partners in crime here, as they seem to be working well together, but the lavender definitely has the upper.. er.. petal here.
This tastes the best lukewarm- it prevents lavender from getting too cocky and blundering up the situation. Milk also keeps everyone together.
Silliness aside, this is actually a nice Earl Grey and the bergamot dosage is at a level I can handle. The lavender is extreme, and while I appreciate the hefty flower punch and its lingering sensations it’s not for everyone. I like the thin, twiggy loose leaves here too.
Thanks, OMGsrsly, for this sample and introducing me to Steam!
Edit: Just to get a couple other perspectives on this, my mom said this was delicious and my dad thought it tasted like dishwasher soap. Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea.
