Benner English Breakfast is ALDI's regular "premium" offering. This Earl Grey is a periodic special.

The tea bags are packaged in individual cellophane pouches. The dry tea looks like CTC granules that have been further crumbled. It has a nice bergamot aroma.

The brewing tea smells of bergamot, but there's little contribution from the tea itself. This carries through to the first sip. The bergamot flavor is nice, but though not particularly strong, it completely buries the tea flavor.

After the tea has cooled a bit, there's a hint of malty bitterness, but just a hint. It's inoffensive, but mediocre. At $2.19 for 20 tea bags, it's somewhat less expensive than Bigelow or Twinings, but also not quite as good.
