This tea is tasty, it is leaf tea, so you do need a strainer cup or understanding that is is loose leaf. If you are familiar with Earl Grey tea it gets its fragrance from Bergamot, it is a type of orange that grows in Italy. There are many health benefits to Bergamot, such as being high in Polyphenols (Anti-oxidants), can help lower bad cholesterol, helps keep your arteries healthy, helps to balance Blood Pressure and is Blood Sugar balancing! Great Tea, would recommend

I have been in love with this brand and particularly the bergamot earl grey - and buying it all the time. Usually large-leafed, fragrant and very well-balanced, was completely different this time.... - first, when I opened the jar this time, it was comprised of small particles, looking like low quality cheap dust. Second, the taste wasn't the same! It smells like those Chinese smoked teas that I don't like at all! Maybe the batch was just faulty, but I'm completely disappointed :( For the price, I would expect consistency and better quality control.
