Second cousin to the Earl Grey, and a not-so-subtle nod to Bowie, these organic white tea buds are scented with the natural essence of Sicilian bergamot and dappled with delicate blue cornflowers. The difference between natural bergamot and its synthetic counterpart is a revelation. While the synthetic version resonates a singular note, the natural essence prompts awareness of a more faceted and voluptuous character true to the citrus' more complex nature. In a word, gorgeous.
