teatuliaearlbengalOnce again, I cannot say enough about Teatulia and their ethical growing practices. I love knowing that my tea is free of pesticides and helps the people who grew the tea. Their cooperative has established education, health and cattle-lending programs for the people working in the garden and surrounding areas. The dry leaves had a woodsy aroma, almost reminiscent of cedar. I steeped this tea in an infuser basket with 212 degree water for two minutes.

This tea had a very thick mouth feel. So much so that I felt as though my throat was coated with oil. Bergamot can be tricky and I feel that a lot companies overdo it. There is a fine line between a yummy hint of citrus zing and drinking orange scented Lysol. That is the case with this blend as well. I’m a big fan of Teatulia’s Black Tea but it was completely obscured by the flavoring. I would probably not recommend this tea unless you REALLY love bergamot.
