This tea really lives up to its name. My partner and I have sort of become earl grey connoisseurs after trying it, collecting many different kinds of earl grey, but none of them in my honest opinion taste as authentic or ‘distinctive’ as this one. The bergamot gives the tea a very ethereal, perfumey smell that is what initially drew me in, and then had me hooked. My partner describes it as an ‘evening tea’ because it is fairly weak, but if you’re like me and enjoy your earl greys for their unique bergamot-ey flavour rather than the caffeine kick, then I suggest you try (or at least smell) this one.
It’s a ten!
