On first smell, this tea is a strong Earl Grey. It smells very similar to Harney’s earl grey supreme. I was a little disappointed as I was waiting for the secret part to jump out. After brewing, the tea smelled of very sweet bergamot, almost a fruity pebbles/fruit loops kind of smell. On first sip it was simply an earl grey. A good earl grey but I still wasn’t getting the secret part of it so got disappointed. After the tea cooled for a few minutes, the flavour profile definitely changed. There was a bold black base, with a medium strong bergamot taste, and this different kind of sweetness to it. It wasn’t the usual bergamot sweetness. After a few more sips the sweetness became floral. I found the secret! The sweet rose petals mix very nice with the bergamot and black base. It is not a super strong earl grey, so for anyone that is scared of the earl, it is a good one to start with as the rose really mellows the bergamot.
