Earl Grey Tea

Was going about my usual grocery round at the supermarket when I was passing through the drinks section and saw some boxes of Earl Grey” tea. I don’t really drink tea that much but I was immediately reminded of Kurokami where Excel and Akane were talking about it. Wondering what was so special about the tea they had to give it a mention in the show, curiosity got the best of me and I bought a box to try. They seem to be quite expensive in Japan if the online prices are anything to go by.

After trying the aromatic version, I can say it has a smoother taste and strong aroma to it than the Tetley bags. The bergamot tastes and smells a bit like herbs…
