Here is the thing. If I’m paying more for a bagged Earl Grey than I’m paying for Twinings, I always approach it with a bit of scrutiny. Earl Grey blends are my favourite! My absolute favourite, so I’m a bit of a hard sell.

Whenever I read labels with the words ‘delicately flavoured’ or ‘essence’ I should take that as a warning to mean ‘barely flavoured at all’.

The bergamot is there, but it’s more like it’s popping in to say hello than coming in for a long visit. This is a very nice black tea with a nice non-bitter flavour to it, and it’s quite nice dressed up with some milk and sugar. Not the best Earl Grey—but a very nice tea just the same.
