The lemon in this is interesting – but I don’t know if that’s a good interesting or a bad interesting just yet. The bergamot seems almost hidden behind the lemon notes of this, and it becomes more of a lemon-y custard (lemon curd) kind of taste with hints of bergamot rather than the Earl Grey Cream teas that I’m accustomed to.
The Assam in this imparts a bitterness. I only steeped for three minutes and I’m getting Assam bitterness. I don’t think that this is an Earl Grey Cream I’d buy again.
