Very boring. Better than Lipton’s appalling attempt on an EG, but nothing to write home about. I like my EG to have a mild, smooth black base, and this one is astringent, which I find takes away from the bergamot oil. EG should be confectionlike and delightful, and this blend tastes like an English breakfast with a twist of something faintly citrus-y. A similar affect could be produced using a plain black Tetley teabag and a lemon wedge.

I’m officially a snob, I suppose.

Flavors: Artificial, Astringent, Citrus

Hello! I love literature, politics, handmade jewelry, all things purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorites: Black, oolong, rooibos, genmaicha. Vanilla, chocolate, fruity, nutty, bready, roasted, dessert-inspired flavors. Floral greens. Kombucha.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends. I’m also also iffy about mate and herbal teas, although there are a few that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
