DONT STOP READING!!
So then we read the directions again, brewed the tea properly, and got down to tasting the tea right. The dry tea had compact, dark leaves and an intense, almost overpowering aroma of cardamom. When brewed (properly) the leaves expanded nicely into large bits and the aroma mellowed to a classic bergamot flavor that stayed on the tongue for a long time and left just a bit of an astringent tickle at the back of the throat. Drinking this tea was similar in experience (though not in flavor) to drinking a big, peaty, single malt scotch from Islay. You don't just drink it for the flavor, you drink it for the experience. You drink it to make your mouth feel alive. I will be recommending this tea to anyone who truly appreciates Earl Grey and understands that drinking is more than taste and smell.
