How I love this tea. The raspberry is the perfect complement, and it’s a true raspberry flavor that doesn’t totally overpower the oolong. A very nice light, refreshing, beautiful tea.

This is my favorite stand-by Earl Grey tea. It’s the one that made me realize I love Earl Grey. It’s also more forgiving on steep time than most, but will eventually get bitter as black teas do.

I’ve noticed that sometimes it has stronger notes of black pepper than bergamot; not sure if that is due to variation in the tea bags, or something to do with whatever I’m consuming with it.

I really dislike this version of Earl Grey. I don’t know what it is, if it’s the variety of Bergamot oil used, or other flavors that are put in with it, but there’s something sharper about the flavor that doesn’t equate to what I’m expecting when I think of Earl Grey.

All in all, I haven’t been too happy with Tazo.

I love black tea with cardamom. I have to say that my favorite is Alghazaleen (or Doh Ghazal) Cardamom Ceylon blend, but this one will do in a pinch.

I put a little too much tea for the water I had and then steeped a little too long, so the result is a little bitter, but still good. The cardamom flavor is not as strong as Alhazaleen’s version, though. Almost too subtle.
