Clearing out my cupboard, I found a sample of this tea I received when buying another Earl Grey from the Tea Shop in one of their shops in Madrid. Although it´s definitely past its best (and therefore I´m not rating it), one can still see why Tea Shop calls it their most citrusy earl grey. If I didn´t buy a pouch of it at that time, it must mean that its aromas didn´t convince me, probably because they didn´t seem natural to me then, or it seemed to me that no bergamot was used (I notice that they only mention the use of lemongrass in the description online) . Anyway, I had a couple of cups from this sample, and I found it uninspiring.

Flavors: Citrus, Tea, Wood

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
