From Shanti Tea

The distinctive flavor and aroma of Earl Grey is derived from the addition of oil extracted from the fragrant Bergamot, a small acidic orange native to southern Vietnam. One of the most popular tea blends in the world, it has a light and refreshing taste. This Earl Grey uses a base of Ceylon black tea.
The Birth of Earl Grey:
Stories abound of how Earl Grey was conceived. A popular one is that Earl Grey was named after the second Earl Charles Grey of Britain in the 1830s, as it would appear he discovered the flavor when his shipment of black tea arrived after sitting next to a case of bergamot oranges during the trip. As tea leaves absorb fragrance very easily, the Earl Grey was born…

Not as strong as some EG’s I have had but it’s still satisfying! The bergamot is lovely. It doesn’t seem to leave as harsh as an aftertaste either. There is a hint of smoke towards the end of the sip that seems to fade away rather quickly. But I do like this just fine.
