Ooh, wow. I was a little hesitant to try this tea because of the fruity elements. I mean, I DO enjoy that, but with Earl Grey…? I wasn’t sure I needed to mess with something I love so much. (Even though I love Earl Grey Cream teas!) In any case, as it was a gift, I let it sit around for a while before eventually giving it a go… And… Wow…!
The fruitiness comes across more as a flowery note – like the name suggests! It’s definitely a sweeter Earl Grey, but with a softness to it I wasn’t expecting; the fruits were much more subtle than I anticipated! Definitely a wonderful and light variation on an old classic that should really be tried before being looked over!
