Simply put — this is delicious! A bit on the strong side and probably one of the only teas I put a dash of sugar in — but one of my favorites for sure! Great with rock sugars!

I’m with Rachel C up there. I was also surprised by this tea. I was at a cafe with a friend and this was the Earl Grey they brought when I ordered tea. I’d heard of Mighty Leaf and knew it was supposed to be a nice tea, but had never tried any of them. I expected a cup of standard Earl Grey and prepared myself for bergamot overload, but it wasn’t there. There wasn’t any oily/heavy/killed-by-bergamot flavor. It was just a nice little Earl Grey that was very well done. I bought a box the next day.
So this came in the Mighty Leaf Variety pack that I purchased the other day because I am on this wild journey exploring the world of tea and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised right down to the quality of the tea bag to the flavor of the bergamot. Now I am new to the world of tea and definitely need to try more Earl Grey tea to compare them all against but I do believe this quite the nice tea.
I used to like Earl Greys quite a bit. Then the thrill wore off and I found myself avoiding them. Today, however, as I was deciding what to load my travel mug with, I grabbed this one. Not because I was craving the bergamot Earl Greyness of it, but I just thought that I will need to drink it eventually, so why not start today. Wow! Really, really good. The smoke and feisty intensity really appealed to me. In fact, appealed to me so much that I immediately made myself another cup when I came home. Delicious.
Flavors: Bergamot, Smoke
“Mighty” is an Earl Grey with a TON of extra flavoring added. It’s like the Kool-Aid Man breaking through walls. “OH YEAH,” he yells. “BERGAMOT.”
“Oh,” he adds. “And caffeine.”
