Oh Earl’s Garden. I wanted to love you. The idea of strawberries infused in mah Earl Grey tea was a delightful, whimsical one.

Like Captain Picard, playing his flute.


Alas, nay. ’Twas not to be.

I’ve really only found one Earl Grey that I’ve enjoyed, the rest seem to fall under the “too bitter to drink” category, but this one was peculiar in that no amount of sweetener (honey, in my instance) really seemed to work. In fact, it was like the honey made the bitterness more pronounced. And the bitterness itself was weird! It was… well it made the bergamot notes more pronounced more than anything and it felt like someone just upended perfume into my tea.

It was SO bizarre. I might try it again, with a different sweetener maybe? But, gak, so far, no. I couldn’t even finish the cuppa.
