As it brewed the aroma was much, much lighter than I expected, almost lemony. The liqueur was a fairly light amber. I'm not sure about the taste. There is definitely something more than the usual bergamot to it. It remind's me of St. Isaac's Blend, which has orange, lemon and grapefruit in it. There is a small hint of flowers. I don't really think this is what I would call Earl Grey, but I like it and find it quite refreshing. I think it would make an excellent ice tea.
Lest I get too excited about the snow being gone, Ma Nature gave us 8 inches last night. Today we had something like freezing rain after almost a full day of sun, glorious sun. However, on the green side, there are a few leaves of a day lily poking up.
