Im rating the same version as emlbee and funny enough i also got mine at marshalls. The first thing about this tea that strikes me is after steeping i get a very floral aroma, reminding me of my first tea shop ever and what I think was a black tea with not quite roses but maybe more towards a jasmine. It was forever ago so i cant remember, but it is a wonderful scent. As someone who drinks alot of Earl Grey pretty regularly for me the bergamot is there, but not the kick in the pants I am used to. Very smooth but also very drinkable, I like that it brings back a fond memory but i certainly wasnt expecting that.

I’m actually rating the cheaper, paper tea bag version of this tea. It comes in a canister. I don’t know where you’d look for it if you wanted it. I found it at Marshall’s, of all places. I really like this. I like to make a strong, small cup. It’s like a sweet, refreshing slap in the face. Sometimes that’s what I need in the morning. It says its made with “oil of bergamot” but it tastes somehow different from my other natural Earls. Orangeyer or something. And it isn’t like the “natural” flavor of, say Ahmad Earl Grey, which is definitely fake, though I kind of like it. Regardless, it is NOT subtle, so this is for bergamot lovers only.

I remember this tea from a while ago (late last year and early this year). It was a nice balanced black tea with the sunflower blossoms adding freshness and also making the flavour a little lighter. This would be nice to drink in the summer when you still want something simple and strong but light and mellow at the same time.

It’s not anything spectacularly different but it’s great if you just want something simple with a slight twist.

I received a sample of this from a friend and thought it was about time to try it. Charbrew are a company that I have enjoyed tea from before and so I do have fairly high hopes for this type.

This smells delightfully sweet and reminds me of freshly popped popcorn (which is funnily enough how I found Las Vegas to smell).

Taste is nice and sweet with a fruity and slightly spicy kick. This is a very nice blend, it tastes fresh considering it’s also pre bagged. For me the flavours are perfectly balanced to create a nice combination.

This would be perfect in summer, I may have to buy some and try it out as an iced tea :)
