I didn’t dislike this tea, but I was quite confused by it.
Looking at the ingredients, I thought I would get an Earl Grey with a strong tea base. However, the result tasted very light. I would almost call it weak.
The bergamot flavor was very refreshing and elegant. But the black tea base tasted so light, some of my other Earl Grey teas could produce a stronger second steep than this one.
It was almost like the bergamot was the star of this EG blend, and the black teas were the supporting role. It was almost like, they designed this blend for bergamot fanatics and put in this light tea base as an excuse, so that the bergamot fanatics could claim they were drinking tea instead of bergamot flavored water.
With all that being said, the bergamot flavor was not at all overpowering. And I did’t hate this EG tea. I just wasn’t expecting the way it behaved. I may like it better for early evenings.
I would recommend this if you like a light EG tea.
