When I sniffed this one, I figured it was going to be like most ‘Earl Grey Cremes’ but was pleasantly surprised. You can taste straight away that it’s a good black tea base with just the right amount of bergamot. It is definitely a creamy cup but nothing overtly gourmand or sickly like some teas of this type. The creaminess makes this a smooth, rich cup, and the aftertaste is actually quite brisk, which is pleasing since a lot of creamy teas tend to be too sweet or cloying.

I like this tea a lot more than I expected. I probably won’t be buying more but I will definitely enjoy what is left of my sample.

Brewing note: made this with 1% milk. No sugar. The second cup is almost identical to the first, which is lovely.
