I know that bergamot flavor originates with a citrus fruit, but for me Earl Grey has always been more about a “perfume” scent rather than a citrus scent. In this tea though the citrus characteristics of Earl Grey really come to the fore – the perfume aspect is definitely there, but I’m really tasting a citrus fruit. If you asked me which one, I’d be hard pressed to do so, but would just describe the tartness and freshness which are hallmarks of this type of fruit. I’ll give this one marks for making me think of Earl Grey in a fresh way!

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
