An absolute advancement in Earl Grey. So fantastic, So light, with the uplifting taste of bergamot. Something so perfect and unthought of.

Traditional Earl Grey is modernized by adding bergamot essence to white tea. White tea is the highest in antioxidants and lowest in caffeine, which makes this a very healthy choice. Studies suggest Bergamot oil acts as a mild anti-depressant. Unique and delicious!
How to Prepare
Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8 ounces of water. Heat water to 175 degrees and steep for 1-2 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ingredients: White tea, bergamot extract and blue cornflower petals.

This tea is in competition with being the worst white/earl grey/store experience I have every had the misfortune of purchasing and drinking.
Golly! This tea is bad!
Okay, I’ve officially tried ever manner of brewing/steeping this tea just short of gong fu and no matter what I’ve done, how short I steeped, how close I monitored water temperature and purity, this tea never failed to taste like bitter, acrid garbage. Wow. Just wow. Don’t let me get started on the overly pushy downright rude the sales associates were. They’re lucky I’m not Hannibal….
Its been over a year and I’ve finally managed to make the last of this blend -cold brewed over night as a last resort. Still just as overly sour, bitter and foul as the rest of it was. But I can’t bring myself to pour it and waste money, even if it wasn’t mine. Ugh.
Very difficult and unforgiving to brew. I tried this tea 3 times according to the instructions, and it always ended up BITTER. So I decided to use 165 degree water, and 1 minute (instead of 175 degrees, for 2 minutes). It turns out a bit better, and it’s drinkable, but I only drink it for the caffeine.
I wouldn’t say that it’s the worst tea I’ve ever had, but I won’t buy it again and I can’t really recommend it.
Rather ordinary Earl Grey. Really equivalent to bulk tea bags which lack flavor, body, robustness, and sparkle. I’m quite disappointed, because I loved SpecialTeas’ Earl Grey, and hoped that Teavana’s would be the same (since Teavana acquired SpecialTeas).
Also, must add that my ecommerce experience with Teavana was sub-par.
This was my second Earl Grey, the first being from a teabag (eew). Honestly, I’m hooked. It’s a very strong, bold tea that is just what I need in the mornings. If you prefer your tea somewhat weak, this isn’t the tea you’d wanna buy. I drink it every morning and sometimes in the afternoon, it really rounds out a meal. If you DO like this tea, I highly suggest that you try the Earl Grey Bravo from Adagio.
