So somehow one of my family members accidentally ordered two tea subscriptions instead of one. By the time I pointed it out to them it had already shipped. So this is from the Black Tea box from Simple Loose Leaf. Of the bunch, this was the one I was most excited for.
I actually didn’t have an earl grey in my cupboard.

The dry leaf of this one is Strong and smells a lot like the orange-scented wood polish. This is odd since the ingredient list doesn’t list citrus just lavender, vanilla, and bergamot. Once brewed it actually smells really yummy so much so that I keep sniffing the cup. Taste-wise I’m quite enjoying it but it’s nothing like how they describe it. I taste no lavender at all just a very citrusy tasting bergamot flavor that’s distinctly orange. It’s a really yummy earl grey just not the flavor profile that is described or what the ingredients listed imply.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrusy, Orange

200 °F / 93 °C 2 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

I drink tea for many reasons: For pleasure, health benefits, mindfulness, to help with anxiety, hydration because I have always struggled with drinking plain water.
My rating system is kind of a mess and I keep telling myself I’ll fix it sometime.
