I like! This Earl Grey does not have as strong a bergamot flavor as some Earl Grey teas that I’ve tried, but, I think I like it for how smooth the flavors taste here. It is very nicely round, not at all sharp, not soapy or perfume-y either. Very pleasantly flavored, with just enough tangy citrus notes to keep it lively.

This would be the Earl Grey I’d serve to someone who thinks they do not like Earl Grey because the bergamot tastes too soapy to them … the bergamot here is mellow enough to not come off like that, but, not so mild that it is not noticed. A nicely balanced Earl Grey.

Strangely enough when coming up with this blend i had that in mind. I don’t normally like Earl Greys so i wanted to try and balance it, make it milder so all can enjoy.

I’m an Earl Grey NUT so I love bergamot, and while I do love Earl Grey teas with LOTS of bergamot flavor, I also appreciate those – like this one – that take a softer route with the bergamot.

Noted. I’m in the less-is-more camp, and based on the quality of TM I’ve tried so far, it’s bound to be good!

I like EG Cream, regular EG can taste a bit too rough I guess? the cream balances that out. I’m looking to check a EG Lavender soon. I love lavender!

LiberTEAS

@Lynxiegrl … I think you’d like this EG because the bergamot is more balanced. I love lavender as well.. and it’s a nice complement to the bergamot.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
