Unsteeped, this tea smells a little off. Bergamot is there of course but it smells of chemicals somehow. Once steeped, the smell improves but the flavor is just average. It’s smooth in the mouth. I like it with a teaspoon of sugar.

This is the tea that started my infatuation with tea in the first place and earl grey in general. I have recently begun to try and taste as many different variations of earl grey. But Bigelow earl grey has just the right amount bergamot oil. I steep it for a little bit longer than the recomended time becasue its so much more flavorful, if understeeped it tastes to much like water with a hint citrus but around a 5 min steep gives it the perfect taste. Strong and somewhat bitter but thats what I love about it. Love this earl grey with a bit of milk and honey or most of the time just straight.
Nice bergamot flavor. The smell is a bit disconcerting when you first pull the bag out of its packaging; it has a very strong, overwhelming odor. A quick steep in boiling water mellows it considerably, though. I can still stand to drink it if it is steeped longer than one minute, but I would not recommend it as ideal. It tends to get a tad bitter when over-steeped. Nice Earl Grey if you don’t want to go through a specialty store or can’t be bothered with the fuss of loose-leaf tea.
