Unfortunately, this is not exactly what I expected when I got the tea. Usually, I’m always very pleased with teas by my favourite tea company but not this time. This Earl Grey blend is subpar – I actually prefer the bagged Earl Grey blends from other companies such as Twinings or Messmer. The smell itself is very unappealing. Once brewed the taste is bland and the bergamot aroma doesn’t really shine through. I won’t buy this again as it was very disappointing.
