I was very pleasantly surprised by this tea. I normally don’t like Earl Greys (partially because they smell like the natural soaps I use). So with the addition of lavender, this tea smelled even more like soap to me. But, this is actually a nice mild Earl Grey. The bergamot is not overdone and the lavender just kind of smooths everything out. This is probably the only Earl Grey that I might actually consider buying (got this one from Mel, thanks again!). Prepared with stevia.
