Very strong aroma after opening the zip bag with a lot of bergamot, strong floral accents, a bit of vanilla and woody, ashen undertones.
After steeping it is much more mellow, malty, earthy, with only traces of those aromas present in the dry form.
And the taste is also very mellow, full-bodied, with very slight astringency.
I like this tea. It’s a mellower version of the classic Earl Grey, perfect to sip while reading, not overdone with the bergamot oil.
