Of course I received an Earl Grey, it’s what I am known for and I have tested many Earl Grey’s. This tea is elegant and full-bodied. It’s got a strong background of Black Tea but with as much of a presence of the Bergamot. The difference being the oil of the Bergamot is being used and not just the leaves. The mixture of the Bergamot and the black tea is exceptional.
Hot Tea / Iced Tea Taste Facts: Excellent hot with a very full flavor. I like to taste test these teas black but I can see this being very good with some sweetener. Iced is a bonus as well, this tea on ice is very refreshing and will satisfy a hot day craving any time!
Till next Tea….
