The fragrance of Bergamot is lacking – I didn’t get a strong bergamot aroma when I opened the pouch and I also didn’t get a really strong bergamot scent in the brewed tea. It was a little disappointing to me because I love me some bergamot and I enjoy smelling it almost as much as I enjoy drinking a properly flavored Earl Grey tea.
Flavor-wise, the bergamot is there. It’s a good earl grey. It doesn’t taste soapy or like cologne. The black tea is brisk and smooth and not astringent.
Overall, I enjoyed this. I wish it had a stronger bergamot scent but because the flavors were there, I can’t really knock it too severely. A decent Earl Grey.
