This is my first Earl Grey. I expected far worse from some of the reviews here. I don’t mind the bergamot flavour. Unlike some of DavidsTea’s teas that I’ve tried I can actually finish the pot though I probably would not repurchase.

The liquor is a reddish-orange with a strong floral scent. I steeped it for 5 mins which keeps the bergamot taste light and refreshing. There is a slight citrusy bitterness but not the kind of bitterness that can be unpleasant. It does get slightly more bitter once it cools but, in my experience, this is natural for all teas.

I’ll try other Earl Greys first before I decide how good or bad this one is. For a first impression it’s not terrible.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus
