And this is why I've always liked you more than the others.

Don't listen to PeteVu. He's still bitter about the AP English test he failed.

Even MORE disappointing, it doesn't taste like Citron either! :D

Green Earl for the win here. Bergamot is technically a citrus fruit ;)

i cant even imagine earl grey green. bergamot seems like such a strong flavor thats well paired with black teas. is it possible to keep the bergamot from overpowering a green tea?

Personally, I love Green Earl, because it does not have the bitterness of Black Earl.

I expected to hate the citron green. I was pleasantly suprised, it wasn't bad. Wasn't great either though.
Earl Greys are way too strong for me. I always have to cut it with another tea to make it bearable.

Now that's hard core Citron! But one draw back, there is not tea taste in that! :lol:

I used to drink Earl Grey (black) tea a lot, but I just have gotten tired of the taste on Earl Grey. (Or is it Earl Gray? I'm too lazy to look it up right now. :lol: )
