I forgot how pleasant this tea was. There’s so much extra citrus in the blend that you definitely get hints of lemon and such, but the overall flavor never loses sight of the bergamot. It’s a really nice pairing between the green tea and the bergamot, too; neither overpowers the other. An Earl Grey green can be so nice because you don’t have to overload on the bergamot for it to be the primary flavor, so there’s less chance of getting that bitterness or astringency that can come from too much bergamot. I mean really citrus and green tea go so well together anyway, it’s a natural extension to bergamot. Yum.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
