Review of Earl Grey Lady Violet ® (No. 935)

Very GoodGoodReasonable

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of fine leaves of black tea and cornflower blossom, all sprinkled with bergamot oil flavour. Pours clear amber (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of black tea, with hints of bergamot oil. Bitter, leafy flavour with bergamot oil notes and floral touches. Mildly astringent palate (for the style) with black tea aftertaste. Well, a decent Earl Grey. Rather mild for the style, as it is made of Darjeeling, but I like it nonetheless. It comes at an affordable price, too, given the context (ca. €0.42 per 1 sample in the collection). I might consider buying a regular portion one day.
