I just got this tea today, and I'm drinking some from my thermos as we speak. It's a very good Earl Grey. I like the balance of the tea and the bergamot flavor; not too citrusy like a lot of the other Greys I've had in the past. Overall I'd give this tea a good rating. If you're looking for good balance and something to really perk up your morning, this is a really good tea. I must add, it's a lot better than the Earl Grey from Teavana; Way to go H&S, you all are master tea blenders for sure.
I ordered this one when looking for 3 good staple black teas to keep in my cupboard. It is GOOD. But the Earl Grey Supreme, Diamond Jubilee & Citrus Blend won out. I definitely would not turn it down if offered at a shop or someone's home. To me, it doesn't have as much bergamot flavor as I like.
I couldn't find an Earl Grey in the Harney line-up with the pronounced bergamont I enjoy until I found Earl Grey Imperial. Imperial delivers the perfect mix of black tea and bergamont and delivers it with an undeniable boldness and richness.
