I do find this pretty tasty but I, personally, wouldn’t put it into the Earl Grey category at all. I’m not tasting any EG notes, really, I can taste a small amount of Orange, a nice sweetness, a touch of smoke, a hint of malt, and a spec of unidentifiable spice. Like I said…nice tasting, but not what I would classify as Earl. It’s separate. It’s pleasant and has good flavor regardless.
