An incomparable blend that pairs the strength of black tea with the tangy flavor of bergamot. It’s a classic tea that can also be enjoyed with milk! Study up on the classics with Earl Grey. Earl Grey tea is an incomparable, world-renowned blend that combines the strength of black tea with the tangy flavor of bergamot. It’s considered one of the most celebrated flavored black teas in the world. Deliciously fruity, this black tea is quite simply a must-have in the world of tea. Available loose-leaf or in tea bags.” [source]

In my teacup today is an intense Earl Grey brew from Kusmi Tea. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I have a bit of a thing for the old Earl! I am always keen to test out new Earl Grey teas, and this blend from Kusmi Tea was no exception. This was an intense blend. The black tea was deep, and flavourful, and the citrusy bergamot notes were strong and sharp. I needed milk in this to even out the acidic tones in this blend. I like my teas robust, but in this case it may be a little overpowering for some palettes. If in doubt, dunk a biscuit in your cup for a little extra sweetness!! that is always my advice when you find a black tea a little too strong!!
