Ingredients: A hand-crafted blend of full-bodied organic Indian black tea from Nilgiri, natural bergamot essence and beautiful blue Malva flowers.
Tea format: Loose tea in a reusable canister, or loose tea in a paper bag.
Where to get it: The Tao of Tea was kind enough to send this tea to me. You can order some on their web site.
Recommended Preparation: Steep 2 (not rounded) teaspoons of loose tea for 5 minutes. (10 oz. cup)
Comments: Automatic kudos for being organic. This has slightly less bergamot than The Tao of Tea's Earl Grey, but otherwise tastes pretty much the same. It is a medium-bodied tea and is not flowery.
