I was excited to try this variation of Earl Grey (as I am to try any variation of Earl Grey! I love me some Bergamot!) This is truly a unique combination … bergamot with strawberry and black currant! Yummy!
The black tea is fairly mild with this tea, which in most cases, I prefer it to be a little more aggressive in taste but, with so much going on here – bergamot, strawberry, black currant – I really wanted to taste each of these notes too, so I didn’t mind the softer approach by the black tea.
The flavoring is interesting, there is almost a ‘wine-like’ quality to it, and I found this to be very intriguing. A really nice Earl Grey twist!
