Not only am I surprised I am the first one to log this tea from this company BUT I’m surprised I am the first to log anything from this company at all! And boy-oh-boy I have a few different ones to share with you! So stay tuned!

So – how does this EG differ from others I have already logged? Well…dry – this smells like a mellow to medium strength stereo-typical Earl but with a slight spearminty type hint underneath.

After infusing – it tasted like a medium strength black tea base with those obvious bergamot/EG type flavors but also a surprising hint of something else…something like a spearminty type bubblegum type hint…near the aroma hinted above but with the additional of original Bubble-Yum, almost. It’s very interesting, actually…the bergamot and EG flavors are NOT loud but overall this is a mighty fine tasting black tea that I am enjoying VERY much! If you are looking for that funky-screaming EG – this might not be it but if you are looking for an Earl that will make you think and isn’t loaded with artificial flavors you will appreciate this one like I have.

I do like this! Thumbs up!

I was rummaging through my tea stash and I came across this tea that I hadn’t yet sampled. It’s a bit old, not sure how old, but I do keep my stash in airtight canisters that keep them out of the elements that harm tea. So, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Well, either it’s lost some of it’s bergamot over time or it just didn’t have a lot of bergamot to begin with. I’m noticing that the bergamot here reminds me a lot of the bergamot that I’ve had from 52Teas – that is, it’s on the bubblegum-y side. I love 52Teas but they haven’t nailed their bergamot/Earl Grey yet. They need to find a better bergamot oil.

Anyway … this note isn’t about 52Teas but this tea from a company that no longer exists. It’s alright. Not the best Earl Grey I’ve had. Then again, I don’t know how much that is to be attributed to the age of the sampling versus the actual tea. So, out of fairness, I won’t numerically rate it. I don’t hate it though so I’ll be able to finish the cup.
