I actually tried this the other day — Sunday, maybe? And it alarmed me because it didn’t taste like something I would call “Double Bergamot.” I don’t know what that means.

Yes, I tasted the Bergamot. It was fine. It wasn’t spectacularly strong. Does that mean I’ve only ever tasted Earl Grey teas that were spectacularly strong in bergamot flavor? Does it mean that Stash Tea’s plain old Earl Grey is not especially strongly flavored with Bergamot? Does it mean my taste buds are just weird? Or that I was not feeling my best that day?

Like I said, I don’t know what it all means. Perhaps this weekend I’ll have a taste-off with a “regular” Earl Grey that’s in my cupboard. (I think that one is Taylor’s but it may be Twinings.)

That isn’t Angus; nor is it Merle, Finn, Dulcie, or Squeaky Jess. It’s a very focused Scottish wildcat.

More later.
