Farmer Brothers apparently uses the same relatively rich base tea as for their plain black offering, which similarly brews up dark and tastes stronger than most brand-name bagged teas. As such, you can pluck a bag or three off your hotel's or conference's tea table with confidence you'll get a passable, perhaps even rather good, product. The overall flavor is very smooth and agreeable, without excessive bitterness or detectable artifices. The aftertaste lingers for many minutes, but tolerably, since it doesn't differ much from the tea itself.

Just don't expect the bergamot to jump out much. It's noticeable, in taste as well as aromas from dry bag, wet bag and in-cup. But if the average bergamot level were 5/10 in most bagged Earl Greys, this offering would be about a 2-3—substantially weaker than a black tea this rich deserves. If Farmer Brothers would crank up the oil level a few notches, or infuse a higher-quality, stronger-tasting version, they actually could contend for one of the best bagged Earl Greys around.
