This seemed to be a red tea, instead of the usual black. There was the same sourish aftertaste that I had gotten from a rooibos tea once. Also in the aftertaste was a herb-ish taste from the bergamot. The bergamot aroma and flavor were not as strong as TWG’s Earl Grey Gentleman Tea. I love bergamot, so this mildness disappointed me. I couldn’t detect much citrus flavor; I was more preoccupied with the floral notes of the cornflowers. Unlike ‘regular’ Earl Grey, I don’t think this tea could stand up to the addition of milk.

A soothing cuppa, love the fragrance! Great for a cold rainy day.

This French earl gray by TWG is quite a disappointment. It is still a nice cup of tea. However, the aroma and scent of bergamot is very mild that it doesn’t qualified to be a nice cup of earl grey. Plus it is kind of expensive. So anyone who is looking for earl grey with a more than mild taste of bergamot, this shouldn’t be the choice.
