FRENCH EARL GREY
Tea type: flavoured black tea Brand: T2tea
How to prepare it: 2 to 3 minutes, 100 °C (212 °F)
In the first place, a huge flavour of bergamot, but smooth, gentle and not annoying. Then, such as an hidden sweetness – may be orange? - that sorrounds everything; it's not so sharp, but it’s definitely there. Fresh and extremely smooth.
Less bergamot-ly and more of that foretold hidden sweetness, still I can't understand what it could be.
Let's start saying this: it is not the classic earl grey: it's gentler, and, let me say, more sophisticated than a typical one. Of course, bergamot is the lead scent of this tea. But it isn't the only one. It’s still smooth as before, but secondary flavours give the brew more texture and sophistication. It tastes like flowers: liquid
flowers, particularly towards the end.
Had I to describe it in few words, I’d say "liquid flowers with bergamot". Does it sound weird? Try it and let me know.
My score is 9.2/10
