Here is what Earth Teaze has to say about their tea:
Earl Grey is made of high-grown Ceylon and China black teas that when combined with the smoky orange notes of Bergamot fruit, generates an elegant, balanced and full-flavoured classic cup. Contains a hint of bergamot, which can be especially relaxing and soothing.
When you need to de-stress in the middle of the day without falling asleep, a cup of Earl Grey can be the perfect choice.

MY REVIEW BEGINS
Here is what I think
A very deep amber tea, a bag tea so it’s more of a dust then a leaf, this tea has a very light scent that I could not detect, however a stronger tea with a more perfume scent. This tea can be somewhat bitter.
What I liked
I love a good tea and my favorite is an Earl Grey, this tea fell short in my opinion as an Earl and to judge it as an earl I had a hard time.
What I did not like
Made from dust and not tea, bitter and had a perfume taste.
Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
