4th Russian blend from NYC friends.

Floral but the citrus hid in the background. A little bit of sweetener brought the citrus out a little, but not enough to counteract the floral taste.

Lifting the leaves out of its packaging was probably the highlight of this cup. Dainty flowers laced with a hint of bergamot and greener leaves. However, in drinking this tea you’re left with a neither here-nor-there feeling. Not enough “Earl Greyness” to be a good Earl Grey, and not enough floral aroma after brewing. Not a bad cup, mind you, but it left me in want of something stronger or more well balanced.

Kinda bland and really just doesn’t do much for me, so many others I prefer.

Very tasty tea. Drank it plain. Fresh, flowery scent that holds a dominant tone of citrus. Well balanced. I want another cup :) .

I received a sample of this with my Prince Vladimir I got for Christmas and was very excited to try it as I am an Earl Grey fan. It smelled great upon first opening it and mushing the cute unsuspecting bag to my nose. While it steeped it smelled even better. And the taste…. Mmmmmmm. This has to be my favorite Earl Grey ever. It doesn’t have the over powering citrus taste that most Earl Greys are known for, or atleast that’s how my taste buds see things.

I really enjoy drinking this tea. I take it to work in the morning and resteep it a few more times throughout the day. It resteeps very well! The dry tea smells absolutely horrible, but the flavors balance out once brewed.

This is my second brew-up of this. The first time, I couldn’t get to Steepster to record it.
This was originally in my stack of “I’m not so sure about this” due to the heavy floral scent (big surprise, floral scent in something called Bouquet of Flowers, hey?). But it brews up quite lovely with sugar and cream. Just right for a lazy morning.

This is a pretty subtle Earl Grey. I like the added aromatics.

Great on cold late-winter days with a generous scoop, plenty of whole milk, and brown sugar. Warms the hands and the tummy.
