This is Bruu´s earl grey blend. In nose it definitely shows. When steeping the tea the bergamot aroma´s linger on, but then, taking out the filter, the liquid itself has sort of lost the typical earl grey smell, and in mouth it tastes maltier than other Earl Grey blends. I have no objection to this malty character, but I really love earl grey, and its typical aroma is part of the enjoyment, as far as I am concerned. So not that happy an end IMHO…
From Bruu´s website :
What it is? A harmonious interaction of the soft, slightly spicy tea basis with natural bergamot flavouring let every Earl’s heart beat faster!!
Why we love it? Very tasty. Not only the bright blue mallow blossoms give this popular English classic touch of royal flair.
Where it’s from? Mahseer is located in the centre of Assam, Northeast India, on the North bank of the Brahmaputra River in the district of Sonitpur, 20 minutes from the ancient city of Tezpur and 2hrs away from Kaziranga National Park. It is a beautiful oasis set in the midst of the Balipara division of Addabarie Tea Estate. Assam tea is mostly grown at or near sea level and is known for its body, briskness, malty flavour, and strong, bright colour.
How our drink hits the senses? Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU, Diamond Black has such a floral hit. And that hit carries through as the water lands and infuses. Gradually the black tea makes an appearance. Blending! BRUUing!
The taste journey : Such an intelligent blend. The two potions combine perfectly and the order in which the palate senses each flavour leaves you wanting another sip.
Flavors: Bergamot, Tea
