The light lemony scent is present in the dry leaves, but when brewed is sweet and nutty.
The liquor is a beautiful amber. I was also thrilled to discover that what I thought was just a twig in my leaves was two leaves and a bud, which opened on steeping.

The taste is sweet and nutty like the scent, with a bright edge from the bergamot but no noticeable citrus flavor.

I added about 1.5 tsp white sugar and a healthy splash of milk (I’m a heathen I know). To me, most flavored black are better with sugar and cream/milk. I find them comforting.

Overall impression – I bought a tin of this tea because I enjoyed it so much at the tea house. I’m not disappointed!

This sounds right up my alley :) And I also love sugar and milk in earl grey-ish teas.

Mmmmm…. Sounds delicious! I think I’ve read reviews by others who also add sugar and milk. I’ve been reading only good (or at least above-average reviews) about this tea!
