Thank you Courtney for this Earl Grey. :)
Whilst raw this tea has a sweet and very strong bergamot scent that it also rather perfume like. Different to what I am used to…It’s a nice, strong, fresh smell but there is a sort of muskiness in there too.
Once steeped the tea has forms a classic Earl Grey scent. Sweet and citrus bergamot with earthy black tea that smells fresh.
With milk: The bergamot is very strong and a little waxy in the first few sips. I love strong Earl Grey. It’s also slightly sweet and floral with a strong bergamot after taste. It’s a little on the sharp side but I could drink this without sugar very easily.
With milk and sugar: The milk has lightened the sharpness of the bergamot and created a much smoother tea. The bergamot is still strong and not overly sweet but the waxy taste has reduced.
It’s delicious. More so than their creamy blend. Great for fans of strong Earl Grey.
