Tea: Earl Black

Tea: Earl Black
Company: 52 Teas (Zoomdweebies)

I bought this tea on a whim one day during a sale…….Glad I did.

The dry leaf smells really crisp bergamot with the fruity berry smell of currants. Wet leaf smells just the same but with the wet leaf of the tea coming threw as well. I had heard from other people on steepster that this blend was a bit strong, being white tea with bergamot and all. So I decided to brew three steeps together and combine them. It turned out perfect! The bergamot was at perfect level and gave a nice crisp menthol like citrus flavor which was backed up and broadened by the black current flavor. The tea was able to poke out through the flavors as well, adding to the crisp sweetness of the fruits. It doesn’t even need sweetener either. It taste pretty good iced too; flavors are a bit stronger and it leaves this cooling sensation in your mouth.

Overall it is a very good tea. I actually went  a head and bought another pouch. I mean $4.50 for an ounce of tea with free shipping? YESTH! (I am such a sucker for free shipping.) I recommend this tea to anyone who likes strong bergamot tea, but wants something other then a black tea base.

Note: This tea is still currently on sale.
