I really like this tea. I don’t get why others don’t. The dry tea smell is powerful…this could be a potpourri. The brewed tea has the same smell and the part that I really like is that the tea has the citrusy, bergamot taste. IMO, to many Earl Grey’s are all show and no go…they smell nice, but they have no flavor beyond English Breakfast at best, or a crappy mud tea at worst. To each, his own, I guess.
