For me, the citrus notes come out and blend with the bergamot oil to create a very weak earl grey variant. I put more tea in my steeper than last time but the tea still did not have a very strong flavour. I’m not quite sure what it is that I am looking for more of but I think I need a bit or a lot more bergamot oil and perhaps a stronger tea base to enjoy this one.
