From English Tea Store

Earl Grey is a blend of Indian and Ceylon teas. The tea gets its unusual flavor from oil of BERGAMOT. Bergamot is a small acidic orange. The latest research indicates that the Bergamot orange is a cross between the sweet or pear lemon (Citrus Limetta) and the Seville or sour orange (Citrus Aurantium). The sour orange is native to southern Vietnam, hence the Chinese connection.

This tea has a light refreshing taste, and can be served hot with or without milk or sugar. It can be used to make iced tea.

The last tea for me to try from my ETS Earl Grey sampler.

For a looseleaf tea the leaves are finely ground, like what you would find in a teabag. I probably should have put them in a teabag for a good bit of the leaves leaked through my mesh strainer and when I stir the tea I have to wait for the grounds to settle on the bottom of the cup.

When I sniffed the dry leaves they smelled like regular tea leaves, not the citrusy scent one would expect with Earl Grey. When brewed the tea only had the slightest of hints of bergamot.

I’m not impressed with this tea, I may as well be drinking bagged Bigelow Earl Grey at least then I can taste bergamot.
