Being someone who has always loved the scent of bergamot in Earl Grey but has always felt let down by the flavor, this was defiantly a home run. This is less of an “Earl Grey” and more of a white tea dipped in the bergamot oil. In my previous review of the Copper Knot Hongcha, I mentioned that it was one of my go-to teas at work, this was in my tumbler even more frequently than that tea. The blue cornflower pedals give the dry leave a nice look but also give it a very distinct taste; which coats your mouth with a flavor reminciant of something starchy. I don’t even like to call this tea an earl grey since the quality is so much higher than that of such a traditional tea. Even if you’re not a huge fan of Earl Grey I recommend trying a cup of it, you may be surprised.
