Nice, affordable tea in its loose-leaf form. Balanced flavor between tea and bergamot, slight floral notes underneath it all, just lingering beyond the citrus. My go-to breakfast tea, I usually drink at least one pot at work.

Alright, strong. I like a good strong tea sometimes. First steep was enjoyable and balanced, at least in my opinion, neither the tea nor citrus flavors outplaying one another. Second steep was much more unbalanced than the first, a lot of the bergamot had been washed away giving it a much more tart taste than the first steep… Certainly not bad but not worth the price when compared to any number of loose-leaf early greys that do the job just as well.
