Bergamot heaven! This is real bergmot extract added to the earl grey tea, and for bagged tea, this is one of the BEST. I always try and have a box in my cupboard. So tasty with a splash of milk!

For many years, Stash Earl Grey Tea has been a favorite of tea lovers. Many people seem to love the careful balance of citrusy oil of bergamot and the blend of fine black teas which our Earl Grey blend is famous for. Certain Earl Grey fanatics have grown especially fond of the top grade Calabrian oil of bergamot that we use and have asked for more, ..More,… MORE! Thus Stash Double Bergamot Earl Grey was born.
This is a great late afternoon or early evening tea. It goes very well with shortbread and cream scones. And for a uniquely appealing cold beverage, try Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea on ice.

Lots of bergamot flavour, but I don’t notice much in the way of citrus. This tea can be re-steeped again without losing all its bergamot flavour, but the second cup isn’t quite as strong as the first.
Flavors: Bergamot, Earl Grey, Tannin
Double Bergamot Earl Gray Black Tea, not surprisingly, smelled and tasted more like the bergamot oil than black tea. My only complaint with this tea was that the bergamot tasted a bit bitter (an orange peel type of bitter) and I am not a fan of bitter.
Many earl grey teas capture the citrus taste without any bitter taste. I did enjoy this a bit but unfortunately not enough to recommend it.
Flavors: Bergamot, Bitter
I was a bit wary of this one— double bergamot? Wouldn’t that increase the likelihood that the tea will taste like floral soap?
But no! It’s creamy, smooth, and delightful! This bagged EG is better than any loose EG I’ve had. Honestly. I can taste notes of vanilla, fresh cream, flowers, citrus, and a hint of spice. This is simply amazing.
I found my new go-to EG for sure.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Cream, Floral, Spices, Vanilla
I wrote in my tea journal last night after tasting this and was not incredibly impressed. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE earl grey and bergamot oil even more so! To the moon and back. I, however, wound up giving it a 2.5/5 (which is not awful, but not great). I found the bergamot overwhelmed the black tea and the only aroma I could sense through the oil was harsh citrus – almost alcoholic. When infused I found the flavour to be weak and underdeveloped. I would honestly drink this again – for the value and the fact that I really love bergamot – but would not present to guests at a tasting.

This is most certainly extra bergamot-y. My only complaint here is that you really don’t taste the black tea at all. I was hoping this would be like a more bergamot-y version of Bigelow’s earl grey…which seemed to have more actual tea taste to it last time I had it. Oh well. This will make an excellent latte :)
