This is definitely a morning Earl Grey. Even at only a three-minute steep, it brews a deep copper-to-brown like an Assam or Keemun. It’s like someone took an English Breakfast blend and machine-pressed orange juice into the batch. It smells more citrus than bergamot, even tastes that way too; because of that, it’s not as sour. However, this is in no way a detraction. It’s a very good morning cup without any sour dryness. Does the trick on the wake-up, too.
