I was a little afraid of this Earl. The aroma was so strong when I opened the tin that I feared it might have a very synthetic taste when brewed. Not so! It was lovely and light, but not anemic. (I bought this and two others using a coupon from Barnes and Noble. If they follow a pattern, they will be sending that member coupon out again soon. Eeeeee!) This is a very nice Earl Grey. My favorite is still Earl Grey Supreme by Harney and Sons, but this one is a close second! And I can’t wait to try it as a London Fog.
