Geoffrey sent me some of this to try…can’t believe I’m just now getting to it. This is a great Earl blend! It’s lighter on the bergamot than I expected, which is great because it really lets the lemongrass and citrus come through. The base tea still shines in this as well. Everything blends together very well; no one flavor comes to the fore. I think I’ll try it at 5 minutes next time, though, to see if the bergamot gets stronger.
Thanks, Geoffrey! It’s yummy!
I’ve really been falling in love with strawberry teas lately. And most recently flavored sencha’s have been in my top teas as well. This tea makes the list. Such a sweet succulent berry flavor. I will definitely be checking out more teas from Culinary teas…as soon as I make room in my cupboard. A friend at work purchased 8-10 different teas for me for my birthday, plus the recent Teavana and Harney’s orders, plus hubby took me to Teavana for more teas….I’ve got some time before I can decupboard anything. Glad I got a chance to try this tea, thanks again to LauraR and her wonderful sample package!
I love, love, love nutty teas and this one is indeed nutty tasting with a somewhat dry black tea base. That dryness kind of adds authenticity to the nuttiness. I found that a little sweetener brings out some caramel nuances that I really enjoyed. I think this one would be fun to play with by adding some steamed milk, maple syrup, and so on.
Holy Smokes, this will knock your slippers off. Billed as a breakfast tea, they weren’t kidding. I only brewed if for 3.5 minutes, instead of the recommemded 5 and it was super strong. One reviewer said it needed 7 to taste right. Definately a British style tea. In your face, no nuances. Good for those mornings when your brain is in a London fog.
I brewed this for only the second time today since the mother was in town. For the life of me, I don’t know why I waited so long to revisit it. It’s exactly what you hope for in a promised title like “cream Earl Grey”. The high quality Ceylon tea base and vanilla/bergamot pairing work to outstanding effect to create a very sweet cup without the need for sugar. I also don’t know why I haven’t latte’d this yet. Tomorrow, maybe.
WOW. This one is odd…but sometimes odd is GOOD, right!? Well, let’s see…
The dry smells like toasted peanuts with a slight woodsy smell hiding underneath. The wet leaves and post infusion liquid smells like soy sauce. Yes…It reminds me of soy sauce. The color of the liquid is a medium drab brown. The taste is surprisingly good. It has a nutty taste to it but also a roasted or toasted flavor as well as a little like mocha but oddly smoother than I anticipated.
Yeah…this one is odd but good. Not bad at all. Fairly Complex. Makes you think…
Thank you Doulton for allowing me the opportunity to try this tea.
Slightly bitter and a bit creamy. The maple is there but it is almost like a bully forcing him/herself into a situation that they are not invited to. I found this tea to be rough around the edges. I do see potential if the blend percentages were tweaked a bit.
Extra points were given for potential.
