Another “could not help myself, but buy more tea” tea. At least I bought “Probier-Kollektion” and not their 100 gr pouches, though some teas sound great. So, I had 10 packets, each 4 grams; to try from their, quite big, selection.
And what I was supposed to do, when I had nothing to do at the train station and there was this little shop?
Anyway, tea bought in Bremen, called it’s from Bremen, seems to be fresh.
Also, it is first time I see Nepalese tea (seems to me) base for Earl Grey. Have anyone seen it before?
Now to the tea. The base is great. Very mellow and round, as I am used to with Nepalese, with hints of honey and stone-fruits. Now to the citrus part. Yes, it is citrusy, mellow as well and natural. And now the weird part. It tastes like a Citra hops in hoppy IPA beer. Yes, I notice hops in that. A little bit of bitterness is there too. But it is certainly one of the better EGs I ever had. Maybe because it is that hoppy flavour? I do not know…
Flavors: Bergamot, Honey, Hops, Stonefruit
