I wasn’t a huge fan of this. Maybe my EG expectations are just too high.
The dry tea bag had no aroma at all, even though it was sealed up in a wrapper, sealed up inside a box, sealed up inside my tea drawer. The chances of it going stale from time (still a year before expiry) or air exposure are virtually non-existent… so why was it so un-aromatic and watery?
The bergamot is simply listed as “natural flavouring” which I thought was odd too. Why not “natural bergamot flavouring”? The flavour was lemon zesty when I took a sip so maybe that’s why. Maybe it’s not entirely bergamot.
The flavour was bitter, lemony and had a weak black tea base. No body or warmth. The lemon wasn’t as bad as some toilet cleaner teas, but it didn’t taste natural either. I only brewed for 2 minutes but it went very dark, very quickly. If I have it with milk, I go for nearer the 3 minute mark.
Don’t get me wrong, the tea wasn’t bad. I wasn’t grimacing with every sip. It just wasn’t good either. Not sure what to do with the rest of the box.
Flavors: Bergamot, Bitter, Lemon Zest
