Despite the name this is NOT a heavy Earl Grey. The bergamot is fairly tame by my standards. You do taste bergamot initially then it fades as the base takes over. What is neat about this tea is it is nice and fruity. The scent is like a Darjeeling although I have no idea what base is actually in this. It is strong and hearty like Assam. It has enough bite to leave yours cheeks tingling in the after sip without being bitter. A really nice bagged tea that is like a pat on the butt to help scoot you out the door in the morning.
Shameless plug – Through the month of September 2012, I am hosting a contest to give away two boxes of Paisley tea to two different winners. Follow my blog and leave a comment for a chance to win. Maybe I have made this too complicated? I am getting a lot of views, but very few signups and those that do, are generally not following directions. http://theeverdayteablog.blogspot.com/
