The reviews here seem to be all over the place on this one. So here goes another. I haven’t had Twinings Earl Grey in a couple years. When they reformulated I found the bergamot in the bag form to be way too bright. Tried it today in loose leaf. It was a freshly opened tin with better than a year before expiration. Surprised me there was not much aroma to the dry leaf or the brew. Where is that intoxicating bergamot aroma I crave? While I personally found the tea base to be enjoyable, Ceylon I believe, the bergamot was too subdued. I don’t get it. There was no resemblance to the bag form. Twinings has to have better quality control than this. Surely there was something wrong with this tin. It wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t up to the standard I expected.
