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!
