drank Earl Grey by Dilmah
1511 tasting notes

Received one tea bag from Postcrossing again. It is nice to receive different tea bags and more over, they are sometimes new for my collection. Not this one, but Dilmah – IMO quite good brand for Ceylon teas, especially for tea bags.

I even heard a interview with founder of this brand:

I hope it will work and I hope it is not geoblocked. Otherwise, you have to use VPN to Czech Republic. The interview is very nice and enjoyable with cup of Ceylon tea.

Ah, why I am studying logistics and not marketing. Hihi.

Okay, the tea:
The tea brews really dark, cloudy black colour with aromas of bergamot peel and citruses. I steeped it for “minimal time”, as said, so, it was only 3 minutes. It turned out perfect. Tea base was mild, but noticable; full of flavour. On the other hand the bergamot part of this tea was highly aromatic, but in taste it was well pronouced and together it worked very well. Nothing was too strong and I think longer steeping time would make it worse and it would turn bitter.

Refreshing morning tea! I have to rate it unexpectably high, because, for tea bag, oh boy, it is great.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
