Truthfully I’m not a big fan of Earl Grey type teas and this one is not an exception, but it came in my Palais de Thes gift set. You should probably take this review with a grain of salt because it comes from someone who is already biased. I found the bergamot to be very strong and makes the black tea base kind of bitter and soapy tasting. I added soymilk and that made it better but this is not something I would purchase. My boyfriend, who likes E.G., thought this was good.

I just bought a sampler from Le Palais des Thes that has this in it, so I’m interested to try it as an Earl Grey lover.

Most likely your experience will be better than mine. :) Did you get the flavored tea sampler in the tubes?

Dinosara

Yup! I’m excited although the package will come while I’m in China so it will be a while before I get to them.

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
