I like a strong, fragrant Earl Grey and this is the closest to my “ideal” Earl Grey that I’ve found yet. Picked up the bags in Harrod’s in London…but hope to find a supplier closer to home!
Yes, I’m giving this 100. I’m in love.
Harrods’ description doesn’t do this justice. It doesn’t have a “hint” of bergamot. It’s lousy with bergamot. It also has lots of lovely blue and yellow flowers.
If you want a light Earl Grey, this isn’t it. It’s heavy on the bergamot. Just like I like it. I picked it up loose in London. It’s very smooth tasting, but gets bitter very quickly if you oversteep.
Seriously folks, yum.
