As a lifelong (and therefore picky) lover of Earl Grey, I was a bit apprehensive about trying this tea. Now, I can’t imagine getting through the winter without it. If you love Earl Grey, you must try this tea.
The aroma of the dried leaves can be extremely sweet, but the dark and subtle heart of lovely black tea shines through when steeped. The bergamot note is ever present, but never overpowering. If you prefer a stronger citrus presence in your EG, this is probably not for you.
I just drink pot after pot. Sometimes, however, I do want a more subtle vanilla note (again, the strong aroma really brings it out). I’m trying to look for a version of this that might fulfill this wish. My theory is that a lower cornflower to tea leaf ratio is the answer. Or I’ll try one that gets the ‘cream’ flavor from a different source. Recommendations welcome!
In the meantime, I am happy to drink this until I’m blue in the face.
