A seriously awesome Earl Grey! This has a strong bergamot essence both in dry leaf aroma and in brewed tea aroma … and in flavor! It’s a strong bergamot taste but it doesn’t taste soapy or perfume-y. It just tastes bright and uplifting, the way a good Earl Grey should taste.
Smooth and nicely round. The black tea base is full-flavored and robust and satisfying. The bergamot has a few light floral notes popping in here and there throughout the sip but mostly I get a bright burst of citrus-y notes which is just the way I want it to be when I’m drinking Earl Grey.
A VERY very good Earl Grey! In my top 5. Although I admit that my top 5 seems to change a lot. But this one belongs there.
