I was a little bummed out by this tea. It just wasn’t the Earl Grey that I expected or hoped for. The bergamot is really lacking. No real strong bergamot notes in the aroma and not really a very strong bergamot flavor either.
The bergamot flavor comes forward a little as the tea cools, but it still isn’t enough bergamot to be calling itself an Earl Grey. This is the Earl Grey for those tea drinkers that don’t really like bergamot. And why would you be wanting to drink an Earl Grey if you care for bergamot, I ask you?
