I got this tea at Shadowfall’s stash sale a while back… It is close to a sipdown now. It seems like I have never reviewed it.
I still have a cold, my taste buds still don’t work right. The lavender is pretty much all I can taste in it right now. So I will just roughly consolidate my previous experiences with this tea: I do enjoy it although it sure is not the greatest earl grey out there. The bergamot is rather citrusy than floral, and there’s no creaminess in the tea either. On the other hand, the bergamot flavoring doesn’t seem to taste particularly artificial, which is always a win. The base is decently strong, even a bit astringent.
Oh, and there’s lots of lavender, the whole meadow of it. I don’t seem to mind it.
Overall it makes a pretty solid everyday earl grey with a purple twist from the lavender. I would love to try a lavender EG from some other purveyor one day.
