This is probably my lightest bergamot earl grey, but it is also my most versatile as it is easily drunk on its own but also blends very well with other teas and flavourings.
The tea brews to a translucent copper colour and smells of a light bergamot over a dark chocolate base.
The bergamot tastes of citrus, mild spice, and floral notes and mixes nicely with a sweet slightly citrusy and lightly astringent tea base which has hints of cherry.
The tea feels bright and lively to drink, despite having heavier malt and cocoa undertones. It has an aftertaste of sweet tea with citrus and spicy floral notes. It is a medium bodied tea. The flavour is pleasant and good for blending with other teas as the bergamot here is quite mild and blends at just above an equal balance with the natural flavours of the tea.
A nice earl grey for those who dislike strong bergamot or who want a tea for blending.
