Tea type: Flavoured black tea
Brand: Ahista Tea
How to prepare it: 3 minutes, 95 °C (203/212 °F)
At fisrt there are strong notes both of vanilla cream and bergamot, like a creamy earl grey - and infact it is like that -. Really thick and full-bodied and at the end a few woody notes from the black tea arise.
Now the creamy side of this tea is pushed even more in evidence, with some fresh
bergamot notes in the background.
A gentle earl grey, but thick at the same time, with an interesting vanilla note. The bergamot is still the main flavour - it's an earl grey after all -, but both vanilla and the black tea used as base help in giving structure and body to the infusion.
A good earl grey in which the addition of vanilla brings a new sweet note, but keeping the usual feeling of a typical earl grey.
My score is: 8/10
