This is one of my very favorite teas :) My maternal grandmother, whom I was very close to until she passed, was extremely fond of earl grey, and always made it for me (at night, which incidentally did not make me jittery and hyper, but calmer and more sleepy) when I was younger. Now as an adult I am actually very sensitive to caffeine, but I still love the earl grey, so I tend to look for decaf versions, and this is the best one. Truest to the real thing, in my opinion. And, since I like to drink it at night, it’s just better to have decaf. It is very bergamot-y, but I’ve always added sugar and milk to my earl grey, so I find that tames it quite a bit. I can still very much taste the black tea in the drink, but it does have a strong bergamot taste and aroma. Excellent tea.

I just re-discovered tea about 6 months ago, and I’ve been learning and drinking, drinking and learning, about it ever since! I think I have about 6 cups of tea a day, and my favorite teas are green. Jasmine green is my absolute fave, but I really love ’em all! So glad I found this website :)
