My mother came back from holiday with 25 bags of this tea in a wonderful tea caddy just for me :) What a lovely gift.

Tested with a milk/creamer.

It has the unmistakable fragrance of a nice Earl Grey (sweetly bergamot with strong black earthy tea) and also smells very fresh. Taste wise the bergamot is very subtle and to be honest I would say this tastes more like a standard black tea rather than an Earl Grey. I drink Twinings Earl Grey every day as my standard tea and compared to that this tea is very bland. So bland that my husband could not even tell that it was an Earl Grey.

As an Earl Grey tea I would not pick this one often if at all. Rated as a standard black tea I would say this is refreshing and ever so slightly sweet from natural sources (which in this case would be the tiny amount of bergamot).

Overall I would say this is a nice strong black tea that is perfect for every day use for a pick me up.

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
