Have not tried the bagged version, but the loose leaf is excellent. One of my favorite Earl Greys!
This is truly a basic Early Grey Tea. But it’s not something I would give to my Grandmother for tea time. The bag exploded when I tried to open it, and the flavors are basic Early Grey. The bergamont is a bit heavy and spicy, but the tea is good when you need a cup of tea. Don’t go out of your way to buy this tea. There’s no point.
My mother-in-law gave us a big box of this to bring with us to Korea. It’s been my saving grace, as I’ve get to find good black tea here. But it’s a bit weak for me. If you have it Persian style, mixed with another kind of spicier black tea, and without milk, then it’s absolutely fantastic.
Strangely whilst in Canada this was by far the best Earl Grey Tea Available. Never really touched Ahamed Tea back in the UK – as it is more of touristy type product.
But is clearly the leader of the pack in Canada and a good cuppa compared to the local brands.
