This doesn’t taste at all like Earl Grey to me, and doesn’t taste at all of vanilla, or green tea either. It’s basically a plain ceylon tea. This turns out to be fine, because sometimes that’s what I’m in the mood for. When my allergies have been acting up due to pollen (oh god, so much pollen), this is pretty nice! I’m drinking it without any additions, just letting it soothe my throat. Too bad this is the last of my sample… but on the other hand, I have plenty of plain black tea in my cupboard. Also, this is heinous oversteeped, as you might expect.
