From Yokotea

This is an Earl Grey Black Tea

Type: Black Tea, Contains Caffeine

Earl Grey is one of the most popular forms of black tea and is widely consumed in the United Kingdom as well as throughout the world. This tea’s unique flavor comes from the oil of bergamot, a fragrant oil extracted from the rind of bergamot oranges.

Legend has it that this tea is named after the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s. The Earl was presented with a black tea flavored with bergamot as a gift and thus the tea took on the name Earl Grey.

Enjoy this tea on its own or try blending it with a splash of cream and honey. Earl Grey makes a perfect afternoon activation drink and is often served during high tea.

This tastes like a pleasant, but not especially special, Earl Grey. The tea base seems fairly weak, though I can taste the bergamot oil clearly. Perhaps more flavour will turn out as it cools.

Tasting the black tea more clearly as it cools, it’s lightly astringent and a tiny bit bitter. It tastes slightly wooden to me, but then I have a weird tongue. The bergamot oil is still the primary flavour, as it probably should be for an earl grey.
