The flowers are in full bloom in the Earl’s Garden.
Everyone should have a Earl Grey tea in their stash as it is probably one of the most commonly asked for tea’s, probably something to due with being a great blend. I am going on a streak of trying out DT’s Earl Grey blends as it is one of my favorite blends of tea and they seem to have some unique takes on it, this being one of them.
Dry you have your typical black tea leaves, in amongst them there are pieces of freeze dried strawberry giving it a bit of a contrast in color. It has a heavy bergamot aroma with a light berry undertone, this is certainly an Earl Grey tea no mistakes about that! Steeping reduce’s the bergamot aroma a little and enhances the berry aroma as well creating a perfect balance of the two.
The final brew certainly tastes like an Earl Grey, but with a hint of berries. I felt the amount of bergamot might have been a little high but I also did steep it at a slightly hotter then recommended temperature because I wasn’t paying attention. Even with my mistake it was still a great cup of tea, I am certainly going to keep this one on hand. Especially since it mixes with Cream of Earl Grey really well.
