From Whittard of Chelsea

Earl Grey is distinguished by the citrusy taste of bergamot and takes its name from a 19th century British Prime Minister. Our green tea is crisp and invigorating with a hint of sweetness. It blends perfectly with the flavour of bergamot to give a refreshing and elegant tea.

Brewing
Use fresh water from a kettle. Water left in the kettle loses vitality and makes tea taste dull. If you are using a pot, rinse it with boiling water to bring out the tea’s flavour.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of tea to a 6-cup pot or one teabag for a mug. Pour in boiling water and leave for 2-3 minutes. This tea should be brewed lightly.
Drink this tea without Milk.
Stop what you are doing & savour.

Ingredients
Green Tea & 3% Bergamot Flavouring.
Suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans & Lactose Intolerants.

I felt like having a cup of green this afternoon, so I made a small pot of this one that Auggy has shared with me. It was Husband’s choice. Once again we were amused by how well-travelled this tea is. English company all the way from the US. :D

The leaf smells very EG-y and I didn’t really pick up much of the base tea at all. I’m not surprised at that. I find it’s often the case with flavoured tea that isn’t black or to some extent oolong (depending on the type of oolong) that the flavouring drowns the smell of the tea. I have learned, however, that this does not really have to be something to cause concern. After steeping, it smells much more green and EG in balance with each other.

I’ve always had a bit of difficulty with the whole EG Green concept because bergamot is a strong flavour in itself so I’ve never really understood how the mixture with something more delicate could possibly work. It just never fails to surprise me when it does. The bergamot in this is actually relatively mild (for bergamot) and it does make me feel like I’m drinking green tea rather than hot water with dusty bergamot in it, which is always my worry with these things.

I don’t really drink much in the way of green tea and when I do buy one it’s usually because it’s flavoured with something that sounds really nice. Earl Grey has just never really been in that category for me, so although this is nice enough, it’s not something I would go out and buy for myself.

Whitards Black Early Grey is too strongly flavoured with bergamot for my liking. I’m glad to read that they held back a bit with the flavouring on this one.

Yes, I wasn’t super-keen on that one either, in as much as EG generally isn’t a favourite flavour at all. Auggy also sent me a sample of their Afternoon EG though which Husband in particular finds delightful.

Good lord, is it that many? I’ve stopped paying attention to that, really. Instead I’ve recently discovered that my post about the Bai Lin from Teavivre is up to 51 likes. The mind, it boggles! O.o
