After trying the triple bergamot version two mornings ago and the double bergamot version yesterday, I decided to try the plain old single version today.

But first, I lined up the sample packets and sniffed the dry mix from triple to single. They weren’t kidding. The triple is extremely strong smelling on the citrus/perfume, the single is very gently scented and the double is in between, just as it should be.

In fact, after steeping, the aroma of the bergamot is quite gentle. The tea base comes through more than in the other two versions, and it is sweet and malty. I wonder whether the base is different for this one or it is just the interaction of the stronger bergamot with the same base, but this one tastes much more like it has some Yunnan in the base. The liquor color is beautiful—a sort of a reddish brandy.

The gentler bergamot and sweeter base combine to make this, not surprisingly, my favorite of the three. The metallic note I detected in the others is only barely present here, and the bite is almost nonexistent making this a smoother flavor to my tastebuds.

It’s a very nice tea, and it’s certainly something I would drink again, but I have to make some hard choices about pantry space and there are others that hit my sweet spot better.

I find the names of these teas interesting. doesn’t earl grey blend mean it already has bergamot? Or do they mean earl grey tea with even more bergamot? and then triple strong would really be four times stronger? I wonder if they jus thave an earl grey blend sans bergamot…

You would think so, but I think they just use “with bergamot” to distinguish it from “with bergamot x 2” and “with bergamot x 3.” I’m pretty sure I bought samples of all the Earl Greys they had at the time.

Haha you’re probably right.

__Morgana__

Bergamot is the citrus that provides the distinctive aroma and flavor of Earl Grey.
