From Canton Tea Co

A truly superior Earl Grey that takes this traditional favourite to a completely different level. Unusually it is made with a blend of Darjeelings from the world renowned Goomtee and Glenburn Estates and then infused with natural oil of Bergamot (the oil extracted from the rind of the Bergamot orange). A light scattering of orange blossom petals adds to the visual appeal. It has a lively fresh taste, with the soft base flavours of the Darjeelings balancing the bright citrus notes.

This tea needs to be tasted to fully appreciate just how good an Earl Grey can be. Naturally it bears no resemblance to the mass-produced Earl Greys – but being made with such extraordinarily good black teas as a base, it may just be the best Earl Grey you’ve ever tasted.

This isn’t bad! Most if not all people know about the stereotypical Earl Grey so I will write about the differences I found in this one. Sure it’s bold but what I am picking up on what is different than most I have tried is a peppery type taste behind the floral notes. I found this to be interesting and masculine. Yes, I can taste the bergamot but I didn’t find it to be over-the-top…which is just fine by me. The Darjeeling taste is lovely! I think that is the best part of this tea!

I found this Earl Grey unusual. Tasted more like a Darjeeling with a hint of citrus. Still good, though.

I did taste that Darjeeling as well! I didn’t get as much bergamot notes as you mentioned…which made me nervous before tasting, actually…lol…but it all seemed to work out ok that way! :P

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Earl Grey!

It’s a good Earl Grey. The Darjeeling provides a light yet flavorful base for the bergamot – somewhat wine-like in composure. The muscatel together with the bergamot makes an interesting flavor. The bergamot is lively, although it is a little on the sour/tart side. Not bad though.

It’s a very good Darjeeling…but only a passable Earl Grey. The citrus-sour bergamot aspect – even with the inclusion of orange blossoms was very understated. For a bolder brew, adhere to Canton’s double-or-nothin’ recommendation of 2 teaspoons of leaves to a 6oz cup.
