Wow, I can’t believe 52teas has had a blend out this long without it being reviewed! I’ve been debating on buying this one for a while, it sounded intriguing but I was hesitant given the fact that you only get an ounce for $8.99, but I finally decided to go for it.

The white tea base is very nice and a little sweet, and the flavoring manages not to overpower the tea base. All the flavors are balanced quite well. I don’t really taste either bergamot or blackcurrant as separate flavors, they kind of morph together to form a whole new experience. It’s all very subtle and it works well, good stuff.

At first I thought this would be a black tea because of the ‘earl black’… but after reading your review and you talking about the white tea base, I actually had to look at the page for it to confirm that it was actually a white tea base, and not black as I had initially assumed haha.. the title totally tossed me for a loop

The same thing happened to me at first. :)

Haha okay phew! =)

Yep, same thing happened to me! Instantly dismissed it as a black tea, then later realized it’s a white, which interested me far more (but not enough to purchase).

Maybe it should have been named Earl Black & White?

My name is Kyle. I love good tea, a good book, the great outdoors, and I am passionate about music. I also find enjoyment in writing and mountain biking here in beautiful Central Oregon.

Tea is a hugely misunderstood and under-appreciated gift in the western world, and my hope is to spread the gift of quality tea. It is communion between the passion of man and the raw beauty of nature. It is art, and it is therapy. I hope you enjoy my writings.
