This is an earl grey which is like no other. The smell of the raw tea is strong and smells like perfume but do not let that trick you! The taste is very smooth and has hints of earthiness to it, while soothing your tongue with a sharp yet not overpowering flavor that is similar to the smell, however this time it’s a perfect strength that is very pleasurable. Good for any time of the day for me. I highly enjoy this tea!
