This is my first time having Earl Grey tea! I generally avoid my works selection of tea because, last I checked, it was mainly minty teas (ick). One of my co-workers mentioned that this was in there though so I was decided, “HEY! LETS GIVE IT A SHOT!”

After reading some reviews, I really wanted to try Verdant teas “Earl of Anxi”, but my friend discouraged me since I had never had earl grey before. I’m glad that my work had this, so I can make my decision!

It’s pretty alright! I like it. It’s a lot more robust than the teas I’m used to having. It’s also a black tea, which I usually sweeten, or latte. I could definitely had a bit of sugar to this, but I’m also enjoying it plain. Now I know what bergamot is as well! I can see why my friend’s dad loves it, he pretty much exclusively drinks earl grey, though he prefers it iced.

Overall, this was a pleasant first experience. I wouldn’t mind having it again. This particular tea isn’t something I would stock my cupboard with, but it’s good enough for me to get a sample from Verdant I think!

I recently had Earl Grey for the first time, as well, and loved it. Now I’m looking forward to trying different ones from different companies.

Not much too say. I love tea! Especially greens and oolong. I also really enjoy the occasional fruity tea, but really I’m up to try anything.! …Well except earl grey, I really don’t like bergamot.

When I first joined I usually always forgot to finish my last sip of tea leaving it cold and alone, destined for the drain. Nowadays I still leave the last couple sips of tea. I really drink my cups slowly, HOWEVER, I almost always finish my cups now, even if they are room temperature.
