Traditionally I have NOT been a big fan of Earl Grey. This came in my Lupicia grab bag and it isn’t something I would have chosen for myself but I figured I would try it and I can always give it away to a friend.
Upon opening the bag there is a very strong but pleasant bergamot aroma. I am hopeful although I’m not a huge fan of keemun either so it isn’t a good sign overall. :)
This is pretty good however. I am trying to rate it based on its merits and not my own personal preferences. I decided to add soymilk to it and the bergamot is very strong and citrus-y. I don’t know why but keemuns always taste muddy to me so that’s the least enjoyable part of this in my opinion but it does make a good contrast with the bergamot and is pretty unique. It’s definitely a lot better than most EG’s I’ve had though. I think my favorite is still Lord Bergamot from Steven Smith.
