I just got this tea tonight thanks to Erin. I am so excited because irish breakfast and earl grey are my two most favorite black teas. The smell out of this canister is amazing and just what you would expect: mix between earl grey and irish breakfast. I was pleased that I could pick out the distinct amount of bergamot (If you have read my other tasting notes, you know that I am in love with lots and lots of bergamot). I steeped this blend for 3 minutes and the wait was almost too much to take.
YUM!! I think this is my new favorite tea, it is a perfect blend between the irish breakfast and the earl grey and you can pick out the individual notes of each tea as well as appreciate the lovely combination of all the flavors. It was amazing with brown sugar and milk. So good, in fact, that this tea should be considered an illegal substance.
Once again, thanks Erin for sending me a good amount of this, I have a feeling that it won’t last long!! I think the rating is going to surpass my beloved MateVana…..
