From DAVIDsTEA

Everyone has tried Earl Grey. And yet this one is different. It’s made with an exceptional blend of rare, ethically-grown, high-altitude black teas. Pure oil of bergamot, a citrus fruit, gives it an aroma that’s headier than usual. And the osmanthus petals, from a beautiful grey-blue Chinese flower, add a subtly perfect fragrance. Discover the difference. You’ll never go back.

I’m away on summer holiday/work trip and failed to pack a decent assortment of tea. The nice thing is that there are plenty of places to buy tea, including a David’s nearby. I have been drinking two cups of this tea every morning for the past few days. It seems like a good solid EG, but nothing to get super excited about. It is reliable and is an enjoyable cup that I have with a little creamer, but it isn’t something I’d want to keep in stock or would even turn to if I had my tea cupboard nearby.

Have tried this a handful of times now and every time I added milk and sugar as that’s what I’m used to. Didn’t care for it a whole lot, I felt like it changed and weakened the flavor. Today I tried it sans anything else and I like the taste a great deal more. It’s still by no means the best earl grey I’ve had but I think I’ll be drinking this quite often.

This is my staple/ everyday tea. I don’t use sugar in Earl Grey, so I have to steep this one a bit on the light side because it can go bitter if steeped for too long. The bergamot flavour varies quite a bit from one batch to another, so each new bag that I buy is a bit of a surprise. My daughter finds it too bitter, but I love it.
