From Metropolitan Tea Company

High quality black tea with oil of bergamot.

An unbelievable aroma that portends an unbelievalbe taste. We have been told repeatedly: ‘This is the best Earl Grey I have ever tasted.’

Azzrian sent me a good sized pouch of this…thanks a bunch! I’ve had 4 cups this morning. It’s ok…fairly standard but it was handy as I was checking my 400+ emails as I return from a few days off. BOY OH BOY did I miss my tea while I was away!!!!

I love this tea! The bergamot could even be stronger, but I realise that I am a bergamot freak and most folks prefer more gentle touches of this Queen of oils. My only reservation for this tea is that for me, it could be even stronger in the black – maybe a bit of Assam. I steep it longer than the normal 4-5 min. and use a good round teaspoon per cup – a couple of them for my mug!

4tsp for 3 cups of water. The leaves were dark with some lavender petals. There was a nice strong bergamont scent. The liquor was a nice amber color. The flavor was so strong. I think a little astringent but I am new to this so that might not be the right word.

I definitely need to sweeten this tea and possibly to add milk. I will try it that way next time.

I love Earl Grey, but I found the bergamot in this one to be quite overpowering. I added a bit of milk and sugar, which I wasn’t planning to, and it was much better. It just balanced out the super floral-y, super bergamot-y flavor. It was more drinkable then, and I was semi-pleased. But this is definitely not my favorite Earl Grey.

I agree that the flavor was quite overpowering. Next time I will be adding milk and sugar.

Brought water to a boil and steeped the loose leaf tea in a tea sack for 5 minutes…drank it just as it is…no additives needed with the Earl
