This tea was packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag and is part of the Sweet Medley Gourmet Tea Collection. This was a plain and simple, straight forward earl grey. The bergamot flavor was there but no overbearing or oily tasting. The black tea was a mellow base with just enough astringency to give my taste buds a wake up call. Of the five tea bags that I had, some of them had orange rind pieces in them and some of them did not. This really didn’t seem to have much affect on the taste though. I’ve taken to drinking this tea first thing in the morning when I get to work. I would definitely recommend this tea.
