My first shot at an Earl Grey came in the teavana gift set. I was disappointed as I hear everyone talk about how wonderful Earl Grey’s are and this one was hard to drink because the smell made me feel kinda nauseous not that the smell was bad. It’s that I felt like I was about to force myself to drink perfume! I didn’t finish the cup but gave it an honest shot and it is smooth but I just couldn’t get over the perfumy smell. I really wanted to like it but couldn’t get over the smell.
