Just jotting down some quick impressions:

Scent: Lemony with a strange herbal twinge—like rosemary? A bit creamy.

Taste: Oh the vanilla really comes out in the taste! And I’m detecting the wonderful bergamot oil swirled in—it’s almost like an Earl Grey dreamsicle.

Final Thought: This is an ethereal, sweeter version of Adagio’s Earl Grey Moonlight. It’s not syrupy or caramel in flavor like Moonlight. The sweetness is clearer and more pure, somehow. The vanilla is a “cool” vanilla and the bergamot is more citrusy than flowery.

I’ll have to try one of these cream earl greys eventually… maybe it’s the key to EG success with me, because yeah, it’s definitely not a favorite for me at all!

TeaEqualsBliss gave me a sample of this, and was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Haven’t typed up my notes on it yet, but take the word of the wise. Don’t have this immediately after eating a kiwi. Bad mix of flavours there. It made the tea seem incredibly bitter.

I tried this the other day and probably should add a tasting note- but I think Stephanie perfectly described this tea. I am not a big fan of Earl Grey and I quite enjoyed this one…

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
Quote of the Day: “There really isn’t anything; only the story appearing now—and not even that.”
