drank Earl Grey Cheesecake by 52teas
470 tasting notes

I suspect that I looked like a kid on christmas morning when I pulled this out of my Fire Sale box from Rachel. I knew it would be good stuff, but I was expecting samples…. not, you know, several practically full bags of awesome discontinued/unavailable teas. That’s right, I have a whole bag of this! Which is nice, because it’s so good it makes me cry a little to think about drinking the last of it.

The bf had a sip from my cup and described this as “earl grey with a slice of cheesecake melted in.” It’s just…. perfection. The earl grey is very strong, pretty heavy on the bergamot actually, and with a hint of lemon as well. First you get the bold, super-strong earl grey, then there’s the creamy, sweet cheesecake. There’s no crust element, it’s more like cheescake filling. But for me that’s the best part!

EDIT: I resteeped this twice last night: the second steep was even cheescakey-er than the first, and the third held up well too!

Boooo, I didn’t even know this one existed, and it sounds delicious! :(

I didn’t know it existed either! 52teas has so many blends it’s hard to keep track of the older ones. But I love earl grey and cheesecake so it’s a match made in heaven for me.

I was surprised this wasn’t more popular than it was. It got some really mixed reviews too, which kind of took me by surprise. I had a really hard time NOT arguing with some of the reviewers.

I was a bit surprised at the negative reviews as well. This blend sounds so delicious. I think I’ll have to make a real earl grey cheesecake at some point.

I’m so happy this went to a good home. :)

Dylan Oxford

Man, that does sound really, really good.

Babble

This sounds interesting, but since I’m so finnicky with Earl Grey, I probably wouldn’t like this, since I don’t seem to be an Oil of Bergamot fan. I’d still give it a try, though ;)

Alphakitty

I have no idea how this scored a 5! Maybe some people just don’t like bergamot? This is a pretty strong earl grey.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
