From American Tea Room

The champagne of Earl Grey’s made entirely of fine Darjeeling black tea and scented with fine bergamot. A fresh balanced classic.

Yesterday I was reading through a thread from some time ago that was about famous tea drinkers. Captain Jean-Luc Picard came up as one. “Earl Grey, hot.” I loved Star Trek: Next Generation. So, in my J.L.P. mood, I selected this Earl Grey to begin my day.

The scent when dry is very bergamot filled. It’s a strong, fresh scent. 195/2 min. Aroma’s still there, so I sip and find that it’s very present in the flavor as well. The Darjeeling, however, is throwing me off a bit. It’s drying. So, I take another sip, expecting refreshment and it still leaves me with a sense of drinking paper. It’s quite drying. I think I would have preferred this as a non-morning wake up tea. Perhaps as an afternoon tea with something to munch. The taste is quite pleasant, fresh, brisk, slightly sweet, but the drying sensation wasn’t what I was expecting.
