This is the first time I have tried this one and once I opened up the travel size tin that LiberTEAS sent me I knew right away it was Earl Grey…no question about it. Smells JUST like Earl Grey should smell like . The taste is special and different tho. I mean, ANYONE can do an earl grey, right!? But what makes each one DIFFERENT is what I am interested in.
Here’s what’s DIFFERENT about this one and what makes it stand out – in my honest opinion…
Sure it has an INTENSE Earl Grey nose and I ass+u+me=ed it would be just as intensely on the tongue but it was SMOOTH. YES! An earl grey that TASTES smooth! The Black Tea is BOLD but the bergamot and other stereotypical earl grey notes that are usually overdone…aren’t…they AREN’T overdone!!! YAY! Most of the time when they are over done they seem to taste very fake and have funky lingers. (OH! “The Funky Lingers” wouldn’t that be a COOL name for a band!?) Anyhow…this is NICE…real tasting and smooth but still noticeably earl grey! YAY!
