Taster’s Review:

Blackbird Tea Co makes some tasty teas and this one is no exception to that rule.

I brewed this tea up to treat myself to a hot beverage to warm me up from the cold office.  I swear our office is an ice box!

But this, that, and the other got in the way of my tea drinking experience so by the time I got around to this tea, it was cold.  I went ahead and took a sip and this tea is such a forgiving loving tea!

As an iced tea, this tea was perfect for the fans that like a light earl grey touch to their teas.  This wasn’t an overwhelming earl grey/bergamot oil flavor, but more of a kiss.  The black tea was subtle and didn’t become astringent.  Such a smooth iced earl tea to keep me going thru the day.

When I first started steeping this, the tea had a pretty strong earl grey flavor.  I’m curious now if this has a really strong earl grey flavor when hot but cooled the flavors are muted.  So nice to end my day with at the office.

And if you are keeping up with my sipdown adventures this is #15.  Woohoo!
