I honestly have no idea how I ended up with this tea. I mean, with shelves packed with tea, there’s no reason for me to have bought this. Bagged black tea? From Amazon?

¯\(ツ)

Anyway. I’m not sure what to think about this. Each (standard shaped) teabag is wrapped individually in plastic, which made me a bit unhappy. On the other hand, there is no dissipation of the fragrance, likely due precisely to this wasteful and blatant absence of environmental awareness. It smells sooooo good.

But the quality of the blend is uneven. I’ve now had several cups and some have just the right amount of bergamot while others basically taste like a middling black tea. It’s a surprisingly nice tea, but it could use some quality control. When it’s there, the Earl Grey flavour is pleasant, but not very bold. It stood up well to a bit of sweetening, but I left the mylk out because I was afraid the flavour would disappear completely.

I feel a bit bad not recommending it, but there are much quality-er blends out there.
