drank Earl Grey by Bigelow
25 tasting notes

I had this one from a k cup sampler in the keurig coffeemaker i just bought. I have had earl grey before and this experience just jogs my memory as to why to never have earl grey again. The bergamot taste seems almost bitter to me when used to drinking other teas. I had to add milk to this tea and I never add milk to any tea because it reduces the effectiveness of the antioxidants. This is one that I would definitely not have again for a very long time.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C

I feel the same way about that bergamot flavor-yuck! :)

Guys, you shouldn’t base your opinion of bergamot on something like this tea. I wouldn’t be surprised if they use an artificial flavoring, not even the real oil. Give it another try, but make sure it is a high quality loose leaf tea next time. Good luck.

I don’t know where I can get real bergamot to get a better opinion on the flavor.
