Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sample of this to try!
This is a very good Earl Grey. The dry leaf has a very strong bergamot aroma which is something that I always look for in an Earl Grey – I LOVE that fragrance! The brewed tea is not nearly as fragrant (that is to be expected) but I can still smell a very lovely citrus-y note.
The flavor here tastes fresh and lively. The black tea base is unassuming and unifies with the bergamot to create a nearly seamless flavor. I almost want to say I am tasting just a hint of lemon to this blend, because it tastes more citrus-y than most Earl Grey teas that I have tried. That is not to say it doesn’t taste like bergamot because it definitely does, but it almost tastes like there is a little something more…
It’s very good.
