To start, this is one of the company's most popular teas. It gets excellent reviews and it smells lovely. The company describes the aroma as similar to Earl Grey tea. I can agree but also have to add that it is much milder. Myself, as someone who likes Earl Grey tea, would not choose this as a substitute.
When prepared, the taste is mainly of the black tea itself. The bergamot and other aromas that were present before the preparation seem lost.
The tea itself is advertised as a blend that is lower in briskness and body. This was the case.
To make this tea a bit more robust for my morning cup, I add just a bit of the East Frisian tea blend which registers high for briskness and body.
