In previous experience of Whittard’s Earl Grey blend I found it rather weak, probably in comparison to the Earl Grey I usually drink (the old blend in Twinings teabags, which can get incredibly strong very quickly); but since I didn’t bring any Earl Grey to uni and the new Twinings blend doesn’t sit well with me, I thought I’d give it a shot.

It’s definitely not as weak as I’d remembered! It just needs a little while to brew fully, and takes milk very well. The balance between the black tea and the bergamot is great (and it smells divine; the temptation to just leave a box of it open in my room… XD)— a definite favourite.

UK student, a dabbler in all teas and coffees. Definitely epicurious.

Open to tea trades if there’s anything in my cupboard that grabs your fancy (or anything on my shopping list you might happen to have :) )
