Just got a sample of Earl Grey de la Creme from specialteas.
The smell when I opened the sampler pack was overwhelming. The amount of "bergamont" in the sample was astronomical. Needless to say I did not enjoy their version of one of my favorites. That amount of bergamont would be overpowering, but I think theirs is synthetic.
Long post short, it was not the mellow subtle taste I have come to expect from Creamy Early Grey.
