I prefer starting my morning off with an Earl Grey when possible, so when I saw the plethora of choices in this box I knew I’d be having quite a few happy mornings with the Earl. :)
With that said, this is an interesting blend. The EG notes are familiar – well-balanced bergamot and a rich black tea underneath – but the lavender adds a potpourri note to it that I’m not sure I like; I’m used to lavender as a “calm you down and go to bed” scent, so having it mixed in with my morning brew is a bit discordant.
It tastes pretty good, all told, so I’m certainly not complaining about having the cup…but I think I prefer the EG Creme flavours a little bit better.
