I bought this for my boyfriend (who loves Earl Grey) because it seemed smelled lovely and I was willing to give it a try. I usually don’t like Earl Grey tea, but I love this one! The vanilla adds a smoothness and richness and this tea doesn’t have the astringency that I usually associate with strong black tea. The bergamot is not too strong and there is a slight note of caramel. With a touch of milk and sugar this tea is fantastic.
