I knew this would be awful just from its name (and also due to not finding a decent earl grey during the entire World Tea Expo).
I really can’t think of anything worse than sullying the greatness of bergamot with weird dried berries and flavouring but I was willing to give this a go. The aroma of the tea is strangely fake strawberry, like lollies, with a hint of citrus. And unsurprisingly the flavour is much the same, a poor strawberry black tea with a finish of light (cheap?) bergamot.

Wow, no decent Earl Grey in the entire Expo? How sad. You should try Mariage Freres Earl Grey Imperial if you haven’t already. Strong on the bergamot, that.

None at all, it was quite disheartening! Mariage Freres has been on my wishlist for ages, so good to hear they do a great earl grey :D
