My latest arrival in my tea cupboard : 3 teas from The Capsoul. I must say the fresh colourful look of the tins are half of the pleasure, and the major reason for buying the brand w/o having tried anything from them before. I started with their Earl Grey which smells really very nice, maybe not the typical bergamot scent you find with most of the Earl Grey on the market, but strong and powerful none the less. It also looks wonderful.
But so far I´m not that overwhelmed after steeping it, this time about 5 minutes. I guess this is too long for this blend, as most of the fragrance is gone. The taste I love so much with Earl Grey blends is not present either, so I definitely need to drink it again, and steep it less time.

Flavors: Bergamot

205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
