the good thing about this Earl Grey is the “cream” part draws all of the flavors together very well.. The room note or smell is just a bit sweeter then normal Earl Greys not as strong on the citrus side the “cream” part brings that all together in a great smell. the liquor is a nice red brown. The Flavor has a great black tea and a nice bit of citrus but it is pulled together with the cream. I think it is a lot smoother then a normal Earl Grey and has a place in my cupboard..
