I had tried the Earl Grey green Matcha from Red Leaf but I really wanted to try the black tea base too, since black tea and bergamot seem to just … work better … at least in my opinion. I went with the distinctive level of flavoring here and this is one case where I wish I would have gone with the delicate level of flavoring because it just goes too much bergamot with the distinctive level of flavoring.
Now, I’m all for a good strong amount of bergamot, but, here, it was just too much for my palate. However, this particular Earl Grey Matcha (with the distinctive level of flavoring) is excellent as a latte … especially good with vanilla almond milk! It’s also not bad when blended with Honey flavored Greek Kefir.
