I was worried that I’d hate this. I haven’t had an Earl Grey since my last Twinings bag at a continental breakfast.
Funny thing, I don’t hate it. Which is great.
As soon as I opened the seal on the bag that the tea came in the scent of bergamot almost knocked me over. It was the strongest bergamot I can remember experiencing.
Surprisingly, the tea wasn’t nearly as strong as a brewed cup. This isn’t to say that it’s weak, because it wasn’t by any means, but it was lighter than any other Earl Grey that I remember. Drinking it, the white tea hardly came out because of the bergamot, but made a subtle base so as to not make one feel as if they are drinking hot, diluted bergamot oil.
It was lovely (clean, as some people describe it), and I believe I’ve found my Earl Grey of choice.
Maybe they (whoever invented the blend) should have made the tea blend with white tea in the first place…
