Tasting Note & Distinctive Features
This tea is a combination of a rich and full bodied Ceylon Single Origin Tea with the flavour of Bergamot, a citrus fruit that is native to Calabria in Italy. The strong and distinctive Ceylon Tea partners harmoniously with the Bergamot flavour to offer an authentic Earl Grey Tea. Full bodied yet aromatic, with hints of citrus and a lingering and mildly sweet floral note, this is a majestic tea.
Tight twisted deep blackish with brown and purple leaves. An assertive bergamot aroma is present in the dry leaf. Finely scented and well-balanced tea of rosewood colour (deep brown with orange hints) suggests a tea with a pronounced character. Indeed, on nosing the tea, one immediately senses a complex intermingling of flavours – florals, marzipan and sweet Christmas spices in addition to secondary aromas evocative of a floral garden and a fruit garden. Without doubt, a distinctive tea with body and a steady personality.
