First impressions – I sent some of this tea to my best friend while she was studying in Ireland. When she got the package, she thought I had sent her gummy bears, as that was the sent permeating the wrapping! And I must say, when I open the bag, I do smell those overly sweetened confections. Steeped, though, it smells like Earl Grey with a little something extra.

Flavor – I really like it. It’s simultaneously a subtler and revamped Earl’s Grey. A little lesss bergamot, and a nice berry finish. As with all black teas, I drink this with milk, and it actually works.

Lovability – I can go a month without drinking this tea, yet, when I do, it’s a love affair for at least a week. Then, it drops off my radar again. Amazing? No. Simply all-around good tea that fails to disappoint? Yes.
