I wasn't terribly impressed with this one.

The base tea tasted a little bland and generic to me. Hampstead does not share where the base tea is from, but it tastes more like Ceylon tea than anything else. The bergamot presence is light. Some slightly odd tones in the aroma, including black pepper and something suggestive of cedar wood or hardwood mulch. These woody / herbaceous qualities I like when I encounter in oolong, but I don't like them in this tea.

The cup is full-bodied, but without the sort of crisp bitterness or full flavor that I like in this style. Flavor seems muted. The dominant sensation I notice is astringency, which I feel mostly in the back of my mouth and throat.

I would probably not drink this one again, especially given how outstanding Hampstead's Darjeeling is--even their tea bags, but especially their loose-leaf.

This doesn't taste much like Earl Grey. I think the bitterness of the tea dominates the flavor. I don't like it much. I added cream and sugar.
