I’m not too impressed with this tea. Although the ingredients are not listed, I’m pretty sure this has Ginseng in it.

Leaf Quality
There were many whole leaves, and less broken leaves. There are little white squares (I’m not sure what composes them, but they are definitely organic). Also, there were white, leathery leaves, which were definitely not tea leaves. It smelled pleasant, but not very much like a typical green tea.

Brewed Tea
It smelled like Ginseng, and slightly like Bergamot. It tasted like Ginseng too. Maybe it was the combination of whichever green tea and Bergamot flavoring they used, but I did not taste very much Camellia Sinensis. The Bergamot flavor, which is supposed to make up the earl grey, was almost unnoticeable.

This tea did not impress me very much, and I would like to know the ingredients. This is the only undesirable tea that I have tried from the Durango Coffee Co. I would have preferred more Bergamot, and also more green tea flavor.

This tasted uneven, and to be honest, nothing like Earl Grey should.
