I’m not thrilled by this one. I really , really like Earl Grey, but I’m not liking the lavender in this blend. I would drink this if it was served to me, but I wouldn’t seek it out. The bergomot gets kind of lost. It’s as if you planted a citrus tree and a field of lavender grew up around it. IMO, the lavender just doesn’t belong there.

Other people liked it a lot. I just don’t “get it.”

I’m guessing you really like EG? That might be the difference. I can tolerate it, but I’m not fond of it.

I think it really depends on if you are a solid EG fan…or if you are looking for something different. If one thinks it’s evil to mess with standard EG I can totally see why someone wouldn’t be impressed! :P It all depends what you want to ‘get’ from your cuppa! :P CHEERS!

Well there ya go! That explains why you don’t like this one as much as others.

Bio

I’m a high school chemistry teacher. I enjoy most types of teas. I don’t have any tea shops in my hometown, so I usually order my teas online. Even though I’ve drunk tea for quite a number of years, ordering online for about 15 years, I am far from a tea expert. I just know what I like.
