591 Tasting Notes
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

So I’m not someone who doesn’t like stevia in drinks or tea necessarily but this one is a nope. The turmeric and other spices make this cup have a dusty quality to it and flavorwise it’s just pure stevia with a bit of dusty spices. There actually is a nice honey note in the tea though that I like and it would be a nice tea if they hadn’t added stevia. Added some nondairy milk and it’s definitely better but the stevia still is just so strong Boo…
