I was ordering their Sample of All Teas, and asked for a sample of their Earl Grey Black Tea. Instead of sending the 3 grams I asked for, they sent me a whole package of 100 grams of tea. Incredibly generous of them.

I am very grateful.

However, the tea was not as good as their customer service. I wish it was.

Although Golden Tips Tea Co. said they used natural bergamot oil in their EG, the bergamot flavor smelled and tasted a bit artificial and overpowering, not exactly pleasant nor elegant. The Darjeeling tea base tasted astringent but not very flavorful.

Conclusion: I have had better Earl Grey tea with Darjeeling base than this one.

Flavors: Artificial, Astringent, Bergamot

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 15 sec 3 g 8 OZ / 240 ML

Working as a barista. I take my coffee black.
A complete novice in tea.

The world of tea is literally a rabbit-hole.
My boss wanted to put some nice teas on the menu for customers who look for alternatives to coffee, and he asked me to source teas for his coffee shop.
There, I jumped through the rabbit-hole.
I am not sure if I should thank or curse my boss.

I only recently starting to appreciate English black tea.
Particularly enjoy Earl Grey tea, both plain black and with milk.
