A great value if you can get the giant 500 g tin of it. The bergamot is a little light, but I don’t mind that. The black tea flavor is nice and strong so the bergamot becomes more of a bolstering after taste. It’s quite pleasant if you don’t like to be assaulted by bergamot.
Tea gets bitter quickly, so I don’t recommend steeping it past 3 min

Alton Brown’s Good Eats tea episode was my awakening
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npFAFX04ROE
Prior to that I was a very casual tea drinker (a coffee love, really), drinking a Sleepytime or berry-flavored black tea from a tea bag when the inclination struck. That episode helped me get a grip on the basics of tea (like..what’s an oolong?) and inspired me to start buying loose teas. First loose leaf buy/love affair: Twinings Earl Grey. I love experiencing the depth and variety of beers (faves are coffee stouts, hefeweizens and a citrusy IPA) but an unabashed love of beer has its downsides. It’s so exciting to discover a world with seemingly unlimited depth and variety without the negative side effects (as long as I switch to herbal before nightime). And it satisfies my oral/hand fixation!

Along other taste avenues, I’m currently exploring the vast array of delicious Vietnamese food we have here in San Diego. You can also find me wandering the aisles of the many asian grocery stores, usually with a basket overflowing in exotic greens.

Other hobbies include taking closeup pictures of plants, especially weeds, and reading too much about things unrelated to the advancement of my career.
