Hmm, this is nice but not as creamy as some of the other cream earl grey’s I’ve tried – the now defunct SpecialTeas for instance. It’s a smooth, light tea and the vanilla-cream takes the edge of the bergamot, but it’s striking me as rather ordinary and unremarkable.

Sounds just about right to me … I’m not a huge bergamot fan, so toning it down sounds like a plus :)

SpecialTeas was in my top three tea vendors….I miss them. I always wanted to, but now will never get the chance to try their “Earl Grey de la Creme” I think it was called. :((

@gmathis: I can trade you what I’ve got (about 50g) for something of yours if you’re interested. ;)

@ScottTeaMan: I miss them too, now several of my favorite teas either aren’t produced anymore or are sold at Teavana (urgh) for ridiculously jacked up prices. >:(

I don’t like Teavana’s selection of teas, and they’re more expensive! They had a China Black called EMPEROR’S RED. It was tea like…Golden Monkey, but much more tippy and flavorful. Also a China Black similar to EMPEROR’S RED, but more tippy, and sadly it sold out before I got to order it. BUDDHA’S RED I think it was called.-gorgeous curled, abungantly tippy leaves.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
