Free sample from the Whole Foods :) I actually like this earl grey- and I’m not shocked because earl grey is fine in tea bags for me; I don’t need anything fancy or expensive. The point of the bergamot is to mask the sins of the tea, and so double-bergamot means I could nearly be drinking sawdust rather than black tea and probably still like it.

I was a bit worried by how strong the brew smelled, but the taste is a little less aggressive while still a nice, sharp, bergamoty earl grey. This is perfect on a rainy day with a splash of vanilla soy milk.

I must say I’ve never really bought stash teas, but the last two freebie bags I’ve had have been …. dare I say… enjoyable?

Grad student in sociocultural anthropology. I drink tea while reading for my courses, and it makes the books go down easier. I genuinely like most kinds of tea – although fruit tisanes kind of scare me.
