Commercial Description

The best Earl Grey teas begin with high quality full black tea leaves, which get their legendary flavor from natural bergamot oil - oil from a citrus fruit grown in Bergamo, Italy. This is an elegant cuppa' tea with tried and true flavor that ranges from a light citrus zip to a deep, smooth black tea.

Not bad, but not my type of tea. The bergamot flavor is very muted and I do taste some bitterness (even though I tried to prevent this with a relatively short steeping).

For my second cup I added hazelnut creamer and this improved the tea immensely. So if you like a creamy tea, this isn't a bad base, but as a general rule I like tea that I can drink straight without having to modify or fix it with additions. I will say that they included quite a good bit of tea in the bag and I could, therefore, distinctly feel the caffeine. So it certainly functions as a morning cup, particularly if you like creamer.

Update: I tried this one again, having forgotten that I'd tried it before. This time I was a bit more impressed. The flavor wasn't actually bitter at all. It was more just a strong cup of Earl Grey with a light bergamot flavor. Still makes a good base for a creamer, but I think a fan of Earl Grey shouldn't have a problem drinking this straight.

This tea is pretty good. It doesn't have a very strong flavor, but I didn't steep it for very long. I added cream and sugar.

I didn't think this tea was incredible, but it wasn't very bad either.

I am not terribly impressed with this Earl Grey; it's very average for this style. The black tea aroma is a bit generic; there's a bit too much astringency and bitterness relative to the strength of the aroma. The bergamot aroma is also fairly mild.

Given the very high price of this tea, and the higher quality of other offerings from this company, I was expecting this one to be a lot better!
