I rarely drink Earl Grey tea, it is on the husbands side of likes. Not that we can’t like the same thing, but honestly a full bodied tea like EG generally benefits from some milk and I tend to drink teas straight up nowadays.
This Earl Grey from Lupicia is really bright. The bergamot doesn’t get drown out at all by the black tea (darjeeling I hear) base. It was still a bit earthy mind you, I was just surprised at the strong bergamot. This would be an Earl Grey I would buy a lot of since it is very fruity and that’s right up my alley. Not sure how it will sit with the more traditional EG drinkers, but for me it was a good choice.
