The best earl grey tea I’ve had thus far.
“So I had this one yesterday and it tasted off. I tried again today in a different (and smaller cup). It is still not that good. Tastes a bit like alcohol, a bit acidic, very flat. I think the...” Read full tasting note

“Wow! This is really strong. The first cup I made was in 6 oz of water and was completely overwhelmed by the bergamot. Second attempt was in 8 oz and mellowed it a bit and made it somewhat more...” Read full tasting note
For many years, Stash Earl Grey Tea has been a favorite of tea lovers. Many people seem to love the careful balance of citrusy oil of bergamot and the blend of fine black teas which our Earl Grey blend is famous for. Certain Earl Grey fanatics have grown especially fond of the top grade Calabrian oil of bergamot that we use and have asked for more, ..More,… MORE! Thus Stash Double Bergamot Earl Grey was born.
This is a great late afternoon or early evening tea. It goes very well with shortbread and cream scones. And for a uniquely appealing cold beverage, try Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea on ice.
Ingredients: blended black teas, bergamot extract

So i’ve been out of practice. But the good news is i have a ton of teas i need to add tastings for. So i will get this out of the way since its the most recent that i tried during the holidays at my parents house.
What a strong aroma from this tea, but i guess with double bergamot this should be expected. i added a bit of milk to this one to cut down on the strong flavor (which is a rarity for me) but after that it was very enjoyable. I generally like lighter earl greys so if you like it strong this one is definitely for you.
I think I might have developed a small tolerance to bergamot because most times normal earl greys don’t quiet satisfy my tea hunger anymore. I think someday I might just be drinking bergamot straight from the bottle. Stash really does an excellent job with this tea. It’s quality I would have expected from Twinings (normally I don’t care for Stash tea).
I don’t know how I would have graduated high school without this tea. It was my morning fuel (besides breakfast). It was my cure-all for any sickness I might have had and my favorite tea in health.
If I had to marry a tea it would be this tea.
