This is an excellent Earl Grey Creme, the black tea is a good, strong base of black tea flavor that holds its own and is tasted even though it has been heavily flavored with bergamot (I love strong bergamot!) and what I like best about this particular blend is that even though it is a “de la creme” Earl Grey, the vanilla flavoring doesn’t soften this tea to the point of being more like a creamsicle than a Earl Grey tea. Don’t get me wrong, I love creamsicles, but, when I’m drinking an Earl Grey, I want bergamot!

Instead, the vanilla softens the bergamot just enough to curb the sharpness without muting its tangy qualities. This is smooth and rich and sweet and delicious. YUM!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
