Oddly enough, for years I couldn't abide Earl Grey, because it tasted 
like perfume.  But once I read about bergamot as an essential oil, I 
perceived it completely differently, and got to like the taste. 
Dumb, hunh?  Lapsang Souchong, on the other hand, I've never managed 
to acquire a taste for.  Like licking a barbaque pit.

?  I'm being very dim, no doubt, but still, don't get it.
