Well, I have a LOT of experience with this Earl Grey, Its the tea that I had every morning at my college cafe (where the guy who works there would say in a strong unknown accent “My freind, you want da Earle Grey Tee!?”), powering me through horribly long days of studying and dealing with incompetent professors.
For starters you can taste the Oil of Bergamot in this tea – the whole point of Earl Grey.
The flavor is smooth and perfectly complemented with a little bit of sugar. Brew it for a LONG time and it will be strong. Even the non-tea people I know liked this tea!
While I had a good year with this tea, it seems that recent batches have gone downhill in quality with an off-chemical taste. I have no idea why this is but the bags at the Cafe, as well as the most recent box I bought at a local grocery store taste wrong in comparison to the previous hundreds of cups I have had. So, I must forewarn you, try this tea at your own risk – perhaps its back to the way it was a few months ago (and if it is, its worth a try. But due to this, I cant recommend it)
