I was a little bummed out by this tea. It just wasn’t the Earl Grey that I expected or hoped for. The bergamot is really lacking. No real strong bergamot notes in the aroma and not really a very strong bergamot flavor either.

The bergamot flavor comes forward a little as the tea cools, but it still isn’t enough bergamot to be calling itself an Earl Grey. This is the Earl Grey for those tea drinkers that don’t really like bergamot. And why would you be wanting to drink an Earl Grey if you care for bergamot, I ask you?

Here’s my full-length review:

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
