I guess my latest mini-obsession is Earl Grey :) Let’s see, I had a very long Chinese obsession, followed by mini obsessions of Assam, then Chai, now Earl :) I threw a sample of this in my cart when I placed my latest Harney order.
The thing that strikes me about this one is the TEA! The tea base is excellent. Smooth and flavorful (I took this one with no milk and just a little bit of sugar crystals). The bergamot is subtle and delicious. Very fresh tasting, zingy, but balanced. Not perfumey at all, but citrusy. This is not the one to pick if you want a hit me over the head bergamot experience. This is the elegant one :) I think you can serve this to someone who insists that they don’t like Earl Grey, and have a very good chance of having them like this one (yes husband, I’m thinking of you :)
(an aside – I love getting samples because you never do know if you are going to like something or not, but I HATE getting samples when you wind up loving something and you only have a wee bit left!!!!)
