This tea is a feast for the senses! Purple cornflowers highlight the green sencha, while the bergamot essential oil bestows its persistent, sweet-and-sour, citrusy aroma. A light and pleasant brew that gives off a sense of freshness and has a lasting finish. Can also be enjoyed cold.
Bergamot, a fruit with strong aromas that lie somewhere between lemon and grapefruit, is believed to be a hybrid of the Citrus limetta and Citrus aurantium species.
