This is really nice. I’m not always as excited about green Earl Grey teas as I am about black Earl Grey … bergamot just seems to pair better with the black tea, in my opinion. However, it works really nicely in this blend.
It doesn’t brew up pink, though, it brews up a clear amber green color, but, that’s OK, I didn’t really expect it to be pink… It is a beautiful dry leaf though, with all the little rose buds in it.
As someone who adores Earl Grey, I found myself looking at the ingredients and wondering why anyone would put rhubarb in an Earl Grey, but it really seems to work here… it gives the cup an almost strawberry-ish taste, which may seem weird, but, it’s working for me. I taste enough of the bergamot to keep the Earl Grey lover in me happy, and the green tea is soft and buttery. A very enjoyable cup.
