The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's Earl Grey Tea
Looks like: A rich, black tea.
Smells like: Fragrant citrus fruits.
Tastes like: A full, tangy citrus tea with a rich Bergamot flavor (Bergamot is a Mediterranean citrus fruit, and Earl Grey derives its taste from the fruit's oil).
Caffeine and other contents: It can be hard to gauge the exact caffeine content in fresh brewed teas, because the caffeine amount fluctuates with each flush. However, the average amount of caffeine in a cup of Earl Grey tea is 40 mg -- half that of a Red Bull energy drink.

Caffeine kick: Very subtle, but stronger than the kick you'd get from a green tea. Don't expect any extended energy rushes. Coffee Bean's Earl Grey is more about savoring the flavor.
