I had this tea at my friend Katja´s last October. It was one of the very few black teas she could offer me, so I tried it.
It must have been the “first” time for me the tea comes in “a flow through infuser bag” (so it says on the little rectangular box a single dose comes in), and I´m actually surprised it´s a strange way to describe a … pyramid tea bag ;-) .
Anyhow, my experience with lavender teas is that they are often very powerful, which is not the case here : the lavender aroma´s come through from the dry tea, but once steeped, the earl grey notes take over. This is certainly not the best earl grey I´ve ever tried (I admit I´m quite picky concerning earl grey teas), maybe it´s the lavender addition (cannot quite understand the reason of combining bergamot and lavender), or just the awkward base tea (blend of ceylon and oolong) chosen for this earl grey. The resulting tea is indeed way stronger than what I expect from a good earl grey (more elegant and fragrant than powerful), which is fine for breakfast, not too great for afternoon. But then again, the presentation is original and stylish, which is a plus for a tea bag.
