Several of my everyday go-to brands have almost doubled in price lately, causing me to look at a wider array of choices. I knew that some of Vahdam's black teas were nice, so I decided to try their Earl Grey. I was optimistic, because the only ingredients are black tea and bergamot extracts. Vahdam Earl Grey Citrus Black Tea ↑ turns out to be a lovely choice.
Respectably sized loose leaf tea.
A lovely reddish tone under bright lights.
I wish you could smell this tea!
A pleasing smooth cuppa with no bitterness, and such a lovely aroma!
As always, this review is only my opinion. There are no sponsorships here.
|Overall Rating (1-5)||5 - Balanced. That is the word for this tea. It has been a lovely surprise, and I will make it part of my regular rotation.|
|Presentation (1-5)||4 - A nice-looking bag that seals well. The zip lock seems sturdy. It isn't ornate, but has a nice appearance and functionality.|
|Dry Scent (1-5)||5 - The aroma is exquisite! There is ample bergamot aroma, which you will love if you are an Earl Grey fan.|
|Brewed Scent (1-5)||5 - Even better when brewed! A very definite, but still light aroma, which you can smell with the cup next to you on the table without overwhelming you when taking a drink.|
|Brewed Color (1-5)||5 - A lovely tea that takes on a reddish hue in bright light.|
|Taste Summary (1-5)||5 - Smooth, good with sugar, sugar and cream (half-cream to UK tea drinkers) or a splash of milk. Also excellent as an unsweetened iced tea. The aroma is simply divine, and this tea is so smooth and lacking in bitterness that "sweet tea" is not a requirement!|
