It seems I am the very first to review this tea.
It comes from a sample I had with my Theodor order in may. Never have taken the time to taste it until now.
I am on holidays since this morning and this is just so pleasant to take the time to have breakfast or brunch properly without hurrying and worrying about trains, buses and timings.
The brewing instructions of Theodor are always surprinsing but I have the habit to strictly respect what they request and it is always for the best.
This Earl grey supérieur (pointes blanches) has been brewed at 85°c (185°F) only and it is perfect.
The bergamot is subtile here and isn’t overpowering at all. The tea base is very delicate without any acridness. It’s a medium bodied tea.
It’s not a sweet tea neither,it’s not so smooth nor mellow.
It’s abslotutely a very present tea with a specific personnality.
I’am happy to have found another Earl Grey so different and I love.
It’s a pity the sample was only for one mug.
