Smells: sweet and earthy like freshly mown grass.

Taste: mellow and earthy, like hay and dirt.

Personal note: this tea marks the point at which I have begun to favour unflavoured tea, and I have ceased to add sugar.

Loose-leaf Lady Grey doesn’t seem to expand, nor does it have much tea flavor. Citrus flavor is nice, though.

Mild, but nice. Combines the best attributes of black tea, green tea and bergamot.

Delicious! Heavy on the bergamot as one would expect, but very well balanced with the taste of the tea itself.
