Taylors of Harrogate Earl Grey is one of my favorite Earl Grey blends. To begin with, it has an intoxicating aroma. I’d, in fact, wear it if the essence could be captured in a cologne. It’s that good. Now there’s an idea. Taylors of Harrogate Earl Grey Cologne for the discerning gentleman or Earl Grey No. 5 for the charming ladies. I like the fragrance so much I almost hate to throw away the bag when I’m finished with the tea. But the real story is in the taste. It is rich, it has stucture and it is full bodied. It’s not like some whimpy Earl Grey blends that are thin, weak, flat or just plain insipid. The bergamot is quite evident and that is the way I like it. I don’t want a so so black tea blend with just a hint of bergamot. If I’m drinking an Earl Grey tea I want to taste the bergamot. For me, this tea is the Bette Middler of Earl Greys. It is bold, it’s brassy and it has notes that will get your attention. And I do mean that as a perfect compliment. There’s a lot to like about it and as long as Taylors of Harrogate produces it it will be in my cupboard. Give it a try, I think you’ll like it.

Bio

I started my tea drinking adventure long ago with a cup of Earl Grey. I’ve tried many other varieties of tea over the years but I’ve always returned to my beloved Earl Grey. My favorite brands are Taylors of Harrogate and Rishi. I’ve yet to find anything better, but the quest continues. Stay tuned.
