I’m a newbie to brewing and tasting, so take my review with a grain of salt.
I found this Earl Grey to have a much stronger bergamot taste than other Earl Greys I’ve had from Twinings and Republic of Tea. And the Republic of Tea one I had was Earl Greyer, which I assume meant it was supposed to have MORE bergamot. Compared to this, it doesn’t though!
Despite the strong bergamot taste, it wasn’t bad. I usually understeep teas because I hate the bitterness of over-steeping, but this one I steeped a bit longer than usual since I was distracted. I did 3 minutes when I typically try for 2. And it didn’t come out bitter at all which was a huge relief.
But the bergamot is pretty overpowering. I will finish the 2 oz I bought, and then search for an Earl Grey that has less.
Edit: As time goes on, and I try to finish what I have, the bergamot becomes really off-putting due to how overpowering it is. Bleh.
