This is tasty. A little different as I hadn’t read the description of this tea before I steeped and took the first couple of sips, so I didn’t realize it was actually a twist on the classic Earl Grey and had other ingredients (vanilla and licorice root, most specifically). But I like these change-ups and am always interested in trying a new Earl Grey variation.
The licorice root was probably the most unusual ingredient I noticed in the description, as I can’t recall having tried an Earl Grey with licorice root in it before. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t, just means I can’t recall at the moment. But these two ingredients seem very well suited for one another. This doesn’t taste overwhelmingly licorice-y, it doesn’t really taste licorice-y at all. Instead, the licorice root seems to fill in the gaps and smooth the sharp tones of the bergamot just enough to create a very seamless taste.
Quite good, actually!
