Bigelow - Earl Grey
This is my second brand of Earl Grey, and
I'm still not entirely
satisfied with it. I really want to like Earl Grey, but I'm not
quite there yet.
Now, admittedly, this
isn't my favorite tea. But I liked it well enough, and a lot
better than the Tazo version. One thing that I liked is the fact
that the bergamot isn't quite as strong in this one. Don't get me
wrong; it's still strong, but not as much as the Tazo.
I tried it black first,
but ended up using a fair bit of sugar and milk. I'm beginning to
suspect that I just am not that fond of bergamot. But, with the
milk, it mellows out fairly nicely. Then it's more tasty.
In short: Decently
strong bergamot flavor; I prefer it with milk and sugar.
