A weakly-flavored, not very aromatic tea experience. If you're looking for a very mild, decaffeinated tea that's easy on the stomach, this is a good choice, but if you were hoping for intense flavors, maybe try something else.

It makes sense that this would be weak. Twinings Earl Grey is a little weak on the bergamot relative to most other mainstream Earl Grey blends, and the bergamot flavoring is one of the things that can save a decaf tea, since the flavoring is added after the caffeine is extracted from the leaf. A tea-centered blend like this one is going to taste a lot worse in its decaf version than one that is more flavoring-centered.

Incidentally, following your review, this tea is now in the bottom 1st percentile...wow.

It looks like other people agree. I know I don't like this one.
