drank Classic Earl Grey by Butiki Teas
38 tasting notes

I am surprised reading some of these other reviews. When I opened the bag, I immediately smelled a very strong Bergamot smell. (Bergamot is that orangey-citrus smell/taste, right?)

I just sipped the tea, and again, I am getting A LOT of Bergamot. It is almost overpowering, but I was in the mood for a lighter black tea this morning, and I am enjoying the citrus note.

Overall, this is good. Definitely more citrusy than some of the other Earl Grey’s I have had.

Yep, bergamot is the orangey-citrus taste.

Tea: I am relatively new to tea, and joined Steepster to learn more about it. I am very open to suggestions, and enjoy reading everyone’s tasting notes. I think this community is awesome.

Me: I am a software developer working for a small company and absolutely love my job. Despite being a “computer guy”, I love the outdoors, and enjoy backpacking and camping. I also really enjoy philosophy, photography, reading, and music.

Ratings:
69 and lower: I probably would not buy this tea again. I might enjoy it, but I have had other teas that are much better.
70-79: I find this tea good, but have had better teas. I would gladly have another cup, but it probably wouldn’t be my first option.
80-89: This is a cup of tea that I really enjoy, and would buy again.
90-100: This is a cup of tea that I not only enjoy, but find something unique about it. This is something I would definitely order again.
