Not in love with this Earl Grey but my dad brought me a couple bags of this when he came over for coffee with my grandmother and I the other day. I like some of the Bigelow teas, but I definitely want to try more brands.
I actually used to hate Earl Grey because I always thought it smelled like anise. A mother whose child I tutored used to bring me Earl Grey every morning regardless of the fact that I never drank it. I finally drank it one morning when I was sick, and I think I’ve sort of associated it with soothing every since then. I forgot about it for a long time after that. It wasn’t until about a month ago that I got tea one night when I wasn’t feeling well and this was my only option. After reading the package and finding that there wasn’t any anise in it, I had to look up what bergamot is to see if that was what the smell comes from. I still don’t smell or taste citrus when I drink this even though that is what bergamot is. Anyway, I have been craving it so much lately and drinking it often.
