Well, I don’t know that I’ll hail this Organic Earl Grey Tea from Delicious Sip as the best I’ve ever had. Then again, I’ve had a LOT of different Earl Grey teas and so there’s quite a bit of competition for that number 1 spot. But I will say this: It IS a really wonderful Earl Grey!
Whenever I’m about to brew a new-to-me Earl Grey tea, the first thing I’ve got to do is smell the dry leaf. Do I smell that bergamot? Yep! I can smell that distinctive bergamot essence, and it’s strong with this blend without being an overwhelming scent. It smells lovely, it smells like bergamot, and it’s a powerful aroma without smelling so strong that I’m worried that it’s been overdone. The brewed tea has a much softer fragrance. The bergamot is still distinctive and I can smell notes of the rich black tea base as well.
The flavor is is divine! The black tea base is a rich, full-flavored black tea. There is a fair amount of astringency to the cup. It’s earthy, strong and has a light undertone of sweetness that complements the tangy bergamot flavor. The bergamot has a tart, citrus-y note to it, with whispers of floral notes that weave their way in and out of the sip.
The sip starts out with a sweet note. As the sip progresses, the rich, robust black tea flavor washes over the palate. Shortly thereafter, I start to pick up on that unmistakable bergamot flavor: exotic and citrus-y, tangy, and just a hint of sweetness. The bergamot lingers into the finish. The finish is dry and I can feel a slight puckering on the inside of my cheeks from the astringency. The aftertaste sort of tingles on the tongue the same way as a tart, citrus drink might tingle.
A very enjoyable Earl Grey. I’m very happy that I got to try it, and if you’re a fan of Earl Grey teas like I am, I’d recommend you trying it as well, you might just find a new favorite to add to your tea collection!
