Got a sample of this in the traveling tea box (I assume it’s the same blend listed here), and am trying it today. I brewed for 5 min., as was noted on the bag, and was a little paranoid about it coming out bitter, but it’s really nice. It’s a lovely golden-brown colour and smells good as well. It doesn’t scream “earl grey” to me (maybe the bergamot isn’t very strong?), but it’s very pleasant. Not too heavy of a black tea blend, and very nice for morning tea.

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
