This is really the only tea I’ve been drinking for the last week or so. I really like it, it’s a nice break from my traditional Earl Grey first thing in the morning.

A modern turn on a world classic taste, this lighter and brighter Earl Grey has uplifting apricot nuances and tartly orange flavor from the elite and robust bergamot. All balanced with a smooth infusion of top shelf, superior white tea featuring less caffeine than our regular black Earl Grey tea.
Light and refreshing with fragrant bergamot citrus.
Use 1.5-2 tsp of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 175 degrees (79 degrees Celsius) and steep for 2 minutes. For stronger flavor, use more tea leaves. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ingredients: White tea, artificial flavoring, marigold petals

I was really worried about this tea, whenever I open up the bag the smell is super intense! Just the bergamot smell…so it’s not bad, just stronger than I’m used to. I’m pretty sure most of the earl grey’s I’ve had before are bagged, so maybe that’s why.
Thankfully, the taste isnt overpowering, maybe even on the milder side. Unfortunately later infusions are pretty light and the main flavor you get is the ‘bud-dy’ flavor of the white tea. Which I’m not a fan of…naturally sweet tea kinda writes me out.
I need to try again though, this is a backlog from like two weeks ago…
My very first tasting note!
Other Steepsters weren’t kidding about the aftertaste of bergamot. While not something I would want all the time, it was very refreshing first thing in the morning, which is the time I usually have my Earl Grey.
May try with a little almond milk and sugar on future days.
What I believe to be the bergamot in this tea is a very strong flavor and scent. It is almost overwhelming to the extent I may not drink it. Although I did get it down sip by sip it was a different experience being that it was a less expensive white tea. A mistake made by buying two bergamot flavored teas including a black tea called Earl Grey Creme Black Tea by Teavana.
My point being I guess I should have done a sample taste by going one ingredient at a time to assess the bergamot. It is good, but so-so to me. As a last thought; never oversteep this tea! OMG!
I’m a white tea drinker much more than an Earl Grey drinker, so that’s the perspective I’m coming from with this tea. I liked it a lot. I found the bergamot flavour to be nicely balanced with the flavour of the tea, and overall a very clean sort of taste – white tea with an added zing. I’ll be having this one again.
