Sapphire Earl Grey Tea
Bergamot and whole blue malva flowers add an exotic twist to traditional Earl Grey black tea. This flavored tea has an exceptional taste you'll truly savor by yourself or among friends.

Page 1 of 1 page with 5 reviewsThis is the first time I try Earl Grey tea. I liked the aroma and I enjoyed the taste after I added some sugar in the tea. I failed to smell or taste any bergamot inside though. general a good tea. but from the health perspective, since black tea is not the best choice in hot summer, I won't try it again till winter. lol.
I always love the smell of bergamot in Earl Grey and the dried leaf of this tea does not fail to deliver, although most of the aroma was lost after brewing. The additional malva flowers gave no new taste to me. Overall I thought this was a good, strong, Earl Grey, but nothing too exotic like the description suggests!
Had this tea for the first time at an upscale restaurant, last night. I've been drinking Earl Grey for years. The malva flowers give this tea additional flavor that is exceptional.

This tea is good. It has a really sweet, interesting flavor that blends really well. It tastes really smooth. I don't usually especially like floral teas, but in this case I think the flowers are a positive addition to the flavor. I added cream and sugar.

Aroma is strongly fruity but also somewhat deep and malty. Fruity aroma strongly suggests concord grapes. Good balance of base tea and bergamot flavoring. Less citrusy than some Earl Greys. Very astringent, and very tannic, however. I recommend a brief first infusion, and then making a second steeping from the same tea bag...this tea is flavorful enough that you can definitely steep it twice.
Good, but not my favorite Earl Grey even from a tea bag, and I think lagging a bit behind Novus' other offerings. I would prefer any number of the pure teas from Novus to this one.
