I’ve found Cream of Earl Grey to be extremely temperamental. Don’t follow the brewing instructions, this tea needs to be lightly steeped for just 2 minutes and 30 seconds, and it’s completely divine even without milk and sugar. I need to set a timer with this guy, and as soon as that 2 1/2 minutes are up, I take it out regardless of how I’m feeling it might taste, and it always comes out great. It’s become my morning routine to brew this tea and do a 2 minute clean up while it steeps (I always think of Loonette and her Ten Second Tidy on the Big Comfy Couch).
I’ve been drinking it straight, just because I feel that adding sugar or milk to tea can quickly turn a good habit into a bad one. But this morning I had it with milk and some agave, and it was just blissful. Sometimes, you need to indulge yourself!
Yes, I had a very bad first impression of this tea, but God only knows how long I had steeped it for. With a little TLC, this tea can go a long way :-)

Definitely feel the same about this tea! A short steep is absolutely required, or it starts to lose the creaminess/become bitter, which makes it no longer so tasty sans milk/sweetener.

Also, curse you for mentioning the Big Comfy Couch! For some completely random reason, a couple days ago I had the theme song to that show stuck in my head on repeat… and now it’s back. “Lunette and Molly, a clown and her dolly, on the big, comfy, couch”. Uggghhh!!

HAHA!!! I love it. When I was writing that, I was thinking that everyone would think I was crazy and wonder what I was talking about. Turns out, I’m completely sane (this round)! I loved that show.
Also Krystaleyn, I’m so happy to have found the secret to this tea :-D liking teas you never thought you did is just as good as finding new ones you love!

Bio

I am a student on a mission to spend all of my hard earned cash on tea, and don’t have time to waste on a bad cup of tea!
I love DavidsTea, mostly because it is easily accessible for me and I like my tea on the sweeter side. I’m looking to expand further into the tea world, especially in terms of oolong and herbal teas.
My favourite teas are anything spicy, especially with cloves and/or cinnamon, anything nutty, minty, earthy, floral or citrus-y.
I am forever on a mission for a life altering grapefruit tea.
