Really good for no doctoring, definitely no additives needed. I enjoy it – it might be close to perfect. Doesn’t zing with bergamot as much as I would expect, but very good. I will give this tea an 80 rating with room for growth.

With milk and sugar. I can taste the lavender mainly in the aftertaste. It’s got some bitter endnotes which I assume is the lavender. A bit sharp. The bitter taste makes it not as pleasing. Dry aftertaste, lack of aftertaste… disappointing because the lavender with it smells good. After tasting some of the wife’s, I think it is better without additives.

I’d like the smell of this a lot. It’s got a very good aroma into it, nice and chocolately and hints of the bergamot in the Earl Grey. The taste is very, very lightly Earl Grey. Mostly just kind of a medium chocolaty taste that’s relatively good because it’s not overpowering. The Earl Grey flavors are not prominent enough for me so it kinda falls into a chocolaty tea with Earl Grey notes. But for a chocolaty tea this is probably my favorite so far.

This is interesting. It is a good tea but tastes kind of heavy, like the Taylors of Harrogate version. It does it has good flavors but very subtle bergamot. (I could be imagining this but it might seem like I can get a taste of Bohea – maybe because it has smokiness to it or maybe the tumbler wasn’t cleaned well.) Overall, very good for a new Earl Grey – I would put it up near some of the better ones and would say this could be a good standby Earl Grey. It continues to grow on me the more I drink.

Very smooth with dry notes and a bit of a bite at the end that reminded me of a Keemun.

I like it – it is quite pleasant. Not over the top wow good but very solid. The flavors are subtle – the bergamot/citrus is muted but there.

It’s very dry. I can taste a little bergamot but it’s mostly the rosy. It’s a very girlie tea – not enough Earl.

This is my favorite type of tea – and this is one of the best examples of that type of tea. It’s smooth, it’s creamy, it’s crisp. Holy beep this is a good tea. Excellent. I want more.

Very light. Very smooth with just a hint of not even bitter but maybe sour at the very end? It’s almost got more smell than flavor. I recognize this is better than the other one I had but I think it is too delicate for me. Kind of like Japanese food – it seems light on flavor until you get used to it, then it’s really flavorful.

I’m still working with this, but suspect that this may be a tea that benefits from either a lot of leaf or gong fu brewing in a tiny teapot. Will report results of experiments later.
