The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
Tea #17

Okay, I think I finally found a tea from TTB that I will probably keep. Combination of black currant and earl grey (read bergamot) is unique, but actually working one!

The berries are just spot on, a little tart, a little chalky, but they give nice fruity vibes. The bergamot is opposite in the spectrum, refreshing and a little sour, but I actually liked this one. Only one thing is missing and was listed — creamy and vanilla notes. It was just smooth, which I assume is more because the Assam and Chinese black tea base used, instead of rough Ceylon one.

Sadly, I don’t remember the steeping parameters.

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.

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 :)
