This is a satisfying black tea, but not a satisfying Earl Grey. It lacks the necessary bergamot kick. In fact, I can’t taste it at all…and I am a bergamot addict. I would suck bergamot oil from a dirty sock.
However! This tea wins back my heart just for being such a smooth tasty black tea. I recommend it highly as a breakfast/daily/morning/basic black because it’s incredibly easy to drink.
So, though I normally rank disappointing Earl Greys quite low, I find this one has a charm to it on its own merits.
