So I think I went and picked up a fresh sample of this, but I’m not entirely sure…
This is a middle of the road Earl Grey. A good amount of bergamot but not overpowering, and an okay but not great black tea base. It has some fruity notes that I’m not wild about and this flatness in the middle of the tongue and what I can only think of as brassiness at the back of the mouth that I associate with mediocre tea.
I’ll probably drink up the rest of this with milk and sugar, which I tend to like in my Earl Greys, and which should help the meh qualities of the base.
Flavors: Bergamot, Fruity
